    Default Same sex marriage laws overturned in ACT

    http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-...212-2z884.html

    Not happy. The greens have introduced a bill on a federal level, I hope it gets through!

    What an absolute disappointment.

    Sad for the couples who's marriages are now considered invalid too.

    I hear ya! I understand the legal standpoint but the ethical one is so much more important. It's a human rights issue, IMO.

    I am saddened, both by the fact that it was overturned and also by me not being surprised it was. How terrible that that's the world we live in.

    Did TA not say that same sex marriage was not a priority for them?

    Then to turn around and spend cash on a high court challenge to overturn these laws..

    Pretty obvious what their priorities are
