The Australian Capital Territory has passed
controversial legislation allowing same-
sex couples as young as 16 legal Civil
Unions in the ACT. Peter Furness of the
gay rights group Australian Marriage
Equality called the ACT legislation “a
very significant step forward in our push
towards full legal equality under Australian
law. Couples from around the country can
also now receive formal recognition and
can celebrate their love and commitment
in a civil union ceremony sanctioned and
approved by the state,” he said. Perhaps
Sydneysiders might consider a marital
holiday across the border in Vegas style.
