Yes, absolutely 100% support it.
I don't see how it could possibly be a threat to anyone else's marriage.
Probably guilty of assuming people are in a heterosexual relationship when I first meet them, no reason for it. I vow to stop doing that from now on though

How on earth would same sex marriage be a threat to mine (if I was married)? I never really got it when I heard that said.
When someone says "their partner" or talks about them. I don't think anything of it, don't presume anything.
I feel if someone wants to get married, then go for it!

Absolutely support marriage equality.
I don't see how it could threaten my marriage - its not like we're swapping heterosexual marriage for gay marriage!
Yes I think I do assume someone's partner is opposite sex. I don't think it's a prejudice or anything like that, it's just more common and it's what I have, so I kind of just imagine an opposite sex person. I often try to imagine what someone's partner might look like, gender is just one characteristic. I'm not shocked if they're gay, any more than I'd be surprised if they had brown hair instead of blonde!

For me its simple - if you love someone else enough to want to spend the rest of your life in a committed, loving relationship, then that's as close to perfection as it ever gets. So what if your "parts" aren’t compatible for procreation. Does that mean that a man and woman shouldn’t be married if they're unable to have children "naturally"? For me its simple - respect for life and the dignity of the human being.

100% supportive. If two people love each other they should be able to make the life long commitment together 😀 no matter what sexuality they are.

Yep absolutely support it!! ! Love is love...it's pretty simple. .and such a shame that it's still an issue. .I have quite a few friends in same sex relationships and it would be so beautiful for them to be able to get married. .they love each other and support each other and isn't that essentially what "marriage" is all about ♡

Love is love it doesn't matter who has what body parts. I fully support same sex marriage, I don't look at it as a 'straight' marriage or a 'gay' marriage to me it is just a marriage and is in no way a threat to my marriage.

An increasing majority of Australians are in support of marriage equality. I honestly cannot see any legitimate reason for gay marriage to be treated any differently to straight marriage.
The only person I know who is "against" gay marriage is my 86 year old grandmother, who thought that she was. She also thinks that my cousin is her niece and that her brother was her son, so I am not entirely convinced that even she really is "against" it. Once she confused a fire escape with toilet.

100% support! I have no time for people who are against it.
