Gay partner of 50yrs dies not able to marry
It was put to me online recently that achieving marriage equality "takes time" and surely we can live a fulfilled life without being married. My answer was no, and how would anyone feel being denied the right to marry simply because of difference? We're sick of waiting for the Lieberal party to drag itself kicking and screaming into the 21st century. I maintain that the only way we'll get marriage equality in Australia is to get rid of this government.
Here we have a couple who after 50 years together wanted to get married on that anniversary, but because of this heartless gov they weren't able to fulfill that wish. Now Peter has died, with both of them forever denied their marriage.
