Same sex marriage law in Australia

Same sex marriage law in Australia

You’re probably aware that the Marriage Act 1961 was amended in 2017 to allow for same sex marriage after an extensive debate over whether same sex marriage should be recognised. The definition of marriage has now officially been changed, to allow for the ‘union of two people, to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life.’ The change means that same sex marriage in now recognised under the Family Law Act 1975 when couples have married inside Australia or overseas.
