Still have a cowardly Australian government, but it is a step forward:

Taken from - the following gives more protection not only to gays, but also de facto's where superannuation, deceased estates and even medical emergencies are concerned. It also gives children of gay relationships more stability when a relationship is legally recognized.

The Australian Federal Government has announced it will give same-sex Australian couples who want to marry overseas a certificate of no impediment.

The certificate, which is required by some countries for heterosexual and same-sex couples, proves a person is over 18, is not married, and that there is no other barrier to them getting married.

Attorney-General Nicola Roxon says while it does not mean a same-sex marriage is recognised in Australia, it does remove a discriminatory hurdle.

Political activists — even the angry ones, but not the daring ones — are happier than the average person.
