Going to vote on gay marriage
Just married and no money left for a car.

Australia could legalise same-sex marriage by as early as the end of this year, after the government announced an attempt to hold a national vote on the issue.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told reporters on Tuesday he would ‘give all Australians a say’ on whether same-sex marriage should be legal.

“I’ll be voting yes, as will my wife, I’m very open about that but the Australian people are never wrong when they vote, whether it’s for governments or on matters like this, their vote will be respected,” Turnbull said.

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Spain since July 3, 2005. Approximately 4,500 same-sex couples married in Spain during the first year of the law.

In England and Wales, same-sex marriage was legalised on March 13, 2014 and the first same-sex marriages took place on March 29, 2014.
