Same Sex Marriage Has Passed The Final Vote!

Same Sex Marriage Has Passed The Final Vote!

An Australian parliamentary vote on whether to legalise same-sex marriage is imminent after MPs reached the final stages of debate on a historic bill.

As the Senate has already passed the bill, all that needs to happen now for same-sex marriage to be well and truly legal is to have the Governor-General ratify the bill.

Before the vote was to be finalised later on Thursday, the House of Representatives was set to debate a number of proposed conservative amendments that were expected to be voted down, according to BuzzFeed News.

The Senate passed the same legislation last week 43 votes to 12.

"There's only one thing left to do: Ryan Patrick Bolger, will you marry me?"

"Australia has done it", Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told the House. "The question though is we need to get the balances right in terms of the protections of those people who have fundamental beliefs based on religion or otherwise", he added. Liberal Party member Sarah Henderson teared up as she spoke about her friend gay friend John Parker, who died months earlier and was waiting for the Marriage Act to change. Dutton said none of his allies meant to delay gay marriage until those safeguards were decided.

While marriage equality could become law this week, state marriage registries say they would not have the paperwork to proceed with weddings until January. Nearly 80 percent of Australia's registered voters took part in the two-month survey.
