Same Sex Marriage
In November 2017, the people of Australia voted and the bill to legalise same-sex marriage was passed by the Senate. The bill was debated and passed through the Lower House in December 2017, paving the way for same-sex marriage to be legalised by Christmas.
As of 9 December 2017, sex or gender no longer affects the right to marry under Australian law and same-sex marriage has become legal. Marriage in Australia is now redefined as ‘the union of 2 people to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life’.
The conditions for a valid marriage have not changed. Under Australian law, a couple must wait at least one month to marry after giving an authorised celebrant a completed Notice of Intended Marriage form. In certain circumstances, a couple can seek permission from a prescribed authority to marry earlier.
