It felt like a real moment to celebrate and a huge step forward, at my first wedding where I could legally acknowledge that……… “Marriage, according to the law in Australia is the union of TWO PEOPLE, to the exclusion of all others and is voluntarily entered into for life.”
I could feel the enthusiasm of the guests in sharing that celebration with me and later many commented on how good that it felt to hear those words. At previous weddings where couples have wished to talk about their feelings on the legal wording, we have later on in the ceremony recognised that it is the couples hope that one day one day, marriage in Australia will be the union of two people in love. This was always met with cheers and emotion, showing the huge support that people feel for this change. So onwards and upwards Australia! May love reign above anything else and may we accept our differences and make this so.
