More About Australia
As a result of the Howard Government's amendment to the Marriage Act 1961 in 2004, federal law in Australia officially bans same-sex marriage.
Despite Australia being known as one of the most LGBTI friendly countries in the world, and although recent polls have shown that 72% of Australians support marriage equality, same-sex marriage remains banned in Australia today.
Most states and territories in Australia have civil union or domestic partnership laws, aside from Western Australia, Norfolk Island and the Northern Territory.
