Same sex marriage receives royal assent today

Earlier today on 8 December 2017 the Australian Governor General Peter Cosgrove gave Royal Assent to the Same Sex Marriage bill after yesterday's historic vote in federal parliament and was passed into law. 

So whether you're in Broken Hill or anywhere in Australia, same sex marriage will now be legal.

At midnight (in one minute) the law will take complete effect.

The first marriages can take place in the second week of January 2018 as a couple needs to lodge a notice of intended marriage, a month before the marriage.
