    While this was on the news here, I don't think it was major news. Gay Australians can already sponsor their same-sex partner on either a partner or defacto visa. They also are entitled to the same benefits as heterosexual married couples under this.

    My opinion is due to this maybe that's why there isn't a huge push for gay marriage like else where.


    Depending on the state same-sex couples can adopt.
