In October, we celebrated our first same-sex union ten months following the Constitutional Court ruled to legalise homosexual wedding.
While inclusivity has brought big strides in the last few years and much more people accept a wider selection of sex identities and sexualities, relationships involving significantly more than a couple remain a tad too unconventional for most.

We know that exists, in a variety of other cultures, but that is unlawful in Australia right?
Appropriate. You are thinking about polygamy вЂ“ a major ‘no get’ area right right here.
