Gay Marriage in Australia
“MODEL MIRANDA KERR’S BROTHER MATTHEW, 29, DECLARES HE IS ‘SMITTEN’ AND ANNOUNCES ON FACEBOOK HE WILL WED BOYFRIEND JAMES WRIGHT, 36,”
The article went on say that Miranda Kerr’s brother Matthew will wed his boyfriend who is 7 years his senior. He announced the wedding in a surprise statement on his Facebook page. Matthew works for his supermodel sister’s company Kora Organics. A photo was published of the two together.
Can this happen in Australia? At the time the article was published and the photo taken there was no way Matthew could marry his boyfriend.
However Ireland, which is predominantly Catholic, has by Referendum accepted gay marriages. This has put pressure on the Australian Government to legalise gay marriages in Australia. Bill Shorten the Leader of the Federal Opposition party will be putting forward a bill to Parliament to legalise gay weddings in Australia. Will he be successful? What do you think?
