Aussies: Yea to gay nups
Australians supported gay marriage in a postal survey that ensures their Parliament will consider legalizing same-sex weddings this year.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Wednesday that 62 percent of registered voters who responded in the unprecedented survey favored reform.
The conservative government promised to allow a bill creating marriage equality to be considered in Parliament in the final two-week session that is due to end on Dec. 7.
A “no” vote in the survey would have put marriage equality off the political agenda, perhaps for years.
