    With gay marriage becoming a reality is it something you even want, as a gay man, and if so what qualities do you look for in a life long partner? I imagine parents that have had seemingly healthy marriages would make good examples for what characteristics are needed.

    Oh, and to answer the question, yeah, I do want it icon_razz.gif

    But my motivations are not the same as others. Here in Australia, there is pretty much no change to how you can exist as a couple or even as a singular person, regardless of being married or not.

    My push for it comes from the fact that I just want to be able to make my own decision and not have the government make it for me before I'm born. That's about it. I may not actually get married, as I don't actually need it in any way. It would be more symbolic and sentimental if anything icon_smile.gif

    I guess it would depend on the other guy. Personally i dont see the need to have the government validate the commitment of my love and relationship.

    I do like the idea of a long term committed relationship with the right guy, but that is starting to seem more of a fairy tale than reality to me nowadays?? Hopefully life will prove me wrong.

    If the right guy wanted a marriage, at the right point in both our lives, i might consider it, but I dont think it is something I would personally ever push for.

    I'm all for insecure people tying the knot in some sort of sweet public ceremony.

    My country, Croatia, will legalize gay Civil union till the end of this year. Now, I just have to meet someone to do Civil partnership with him.
