    Fair enough. For some it is a conscience issue.

    In their view, they lack full equality before the law, much like many oppressed people from the past. For many gay people, this is about more than marriage, it's about undoing the last piece following years of societal oppression and being told how evil and bad they are.
    Fair enough. Although I don't think for them, it is also enough, at least the voice from them that is being heard.

    I am all for them to get equal rights and all that, but surely there could a way of doing that without changing the definition of marriage?

    Why not as is already done, celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of LGBTIQ relationships, as it is done at Mardi Gras, as (but not in my view), superior and more better, rather than just simply try to conform it to something which actually has a different role/purpose and function.

    Interesting to note, in France marriage is a state affair not a religious affair.

    So many cases of people's partners (as they aren't married) being refused to comfort them during pregnancy/surgary as they aren't classified "kin" so currently people are all "equal" or protected under the law.

    Probably because France is a 'very' secular country, much more than Australia is.
