1 Comment on Should Australia legalise gay marriage?

  1. I have no issue with a union of any loving couple, I personaly think that it should be supported as long as both parties are made happy and whole by such a union. I dont however agree that the term marriage should be used to describe that union for a same sex couple as it has an effect on how all marriage is viewed. weather we like it or not there is still a stigma attached to same sex couples in this country as there is in many others. I dont want that stigma to effect how I see my family, wife and children. so whilst i agree with same sex couples sharing a public union and declaring there commitment to each other I would realy pefer a diferent term to be used to make that union just as important as marriage is to me
