Australia Just Voted in Favour of Same-Sex Marriage, Get Ready to Plan Your Wedding!
- Tuesday, 21 November 2017
On Wednesday the 15th of November, 2017, Australia took a major step forward when the country’s population voted in favour of marriage equality.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) announced their findings early on Wednesday morning, revealing the results of the country-wide postal survey vote that has been the subject of a large amount of discussion throughout Australia over the last few months.
The postal survey made it clear that a majority of the public believe that the government should legalise marriage for everyone, not just heterosexual couples, and many celebrated the announcement on social media.
Additionally, many Australians all over the country were quick to take to the streets in celebration of the formal proof that they are accepted by the majority of our society, and that same-sex marriage will soon be a legal reality for our nation.
Melbourne alone saw thousands of supporters celebrate with pure joy at the announcement, and many breathed a sigh of relief knowing that they’ll soon be able to marry the person they love.
While the law hasn’t yet been officially changed, Australian lawmakers have vowed to be quick in formally introducing - and passing - the bill that will allow for same-sex couples to marry.
What this means, is that it’s finally time to start planning your wedding!
