Oh, and just on this I can understand people would be 'against' another person's lifestyle, marriage, possessions, whatever, but I don't think it's a politicians place to actively prevent somebody from living the life *they* want because of their own personal beliefs. They are just that - personal. And in a country that supposedly has secular laws this one just doesn't add up, especially when many politicians and individuals (even in here) have hidden behind religion/bible as a reason to not allow gay people from marrying according to the law.

I grew up learning that being a Christian and being 'Christ like' meant being accepting and not judgmental of others. Was that not the epitome of Christ?
My understanding is that a civil union still does not automatically entitle you to the same rights a marriage does, somebody posted a video earlier that is a great example of this. If I am wrong please correct me.
I am also fairly certain when we were de facto there were some rights I didn't have as compared to now.
An example, he had given power of attorney to his parents years ago when he went traveling, as a married couple that power of attorney is now null and void and I am automatically given power of attorney but as de facto it would not have been.
