Love Wins: Marriage Equality Just Passed Parliament!

Former Australian prime minister Tony Abbott leaves the chamber ahead of the final vote on the Marriage Amendment Bill in the House of Representatives at Parliament House in Canberra Thursday

Same-sex couples will be allowed to marry in Australia after new laws cleared parliament.

The House of Representatives is widely expected to pass the legislation on Thursday, after the bill drew broad cross-party support.

But still, he will never forget the home run or what he had to watch in Game 6 of the World Series. As for the traditional path to getting a managerial job, Teixeira thinks it's overrated.

The public gallery led a chorus of We Are Australian after the final vote, with members of the parliament joining in from the floor of the House in tears.

"Australians are sick of excuses and they're sick of delays", Entsch said.

Turnbull told Parliament that while nothing in the bill threatened religious freedoms, he wanted more reassurances for the millions of Australians who oppose marriage equality. Government minister Peter Dutton, a leader among hard-right lawmakers in the conservative government, said his fellow leading gay-marriage opponents in Parliament agree they should not stop the bill from becoming law while arguing over protecting views of gay-marriage opponents.

"When this law is passed, we should declare we are no longer a nation of people who voted no, or people who voted yes - we are simply Australians one and all", he said. The votes were not counted because the majority wasn't questioned.

More than 100 MPs spoke on the legislation after it was tabled in the House of Representatives. Several amendments being proposed would expand those exemptions, but Dutton and other lawmakers expect all amendments would be rejected.
