Aussie MP weds boyfriend. But will it last 5 days?!

Smooch! Aussie MP weds boyfriend in one of the country’s first same-sex weddings— but their High Court might nullify it in 5 days.

That is not as short as a Las Vegas marriage can be, I guess…

These weddings are interesting because the Australian Capital Territory of Canberra has created a partnership called “gay marriage” which is distinct from “marriage.”

Normally I dislike legalese/sophistry, but this is a clever circumvention of the federal law that says marriage is only open to a man and a woman.
