This will create equality in rights throughout the nation and allow partners of the same sex to receive the social and legal benefits of marriage. Some of the benefits that same-sex partners are currently missing out on are family benefits from the government, they aren't, by the governments laws, recognized as a family. They are also unable to adopt, which is not only unfair on the partners as they can't experience having a child to raise together, but it also means that less children get adopted into a happy and healthy family.

Legalizing same-sex marriage will also achieve article 16 of the human rights statement 'that Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.' Not to do so, we believe would be a breach of the human right stated above.

We believe this action would be of great priority to you, as it will ensure all of the Australian Citizens, which you are leading, feel accepted not only by you, but by their community and nation, it will also create equality throughout your nation and grow

It is for these reasons that we believe that same-sex marriage should be legalized in Australia.
