Despite the fact a clear majority of Australians support the reform, the parliament has dragged its heels for years – leaving Australia well behind other similarly developed, English-speaking nations.

However, advocates hope it will be a relatively short time before the disgruntled, anti-marriage equality Americans are forced to pick up and move yet again. Cross-party discussions about a marriage equality bill are expected to take place in the coming months.

The numbers in parliament are on a knife edge, and government MPs are currently forced to vote against marriage equality in accordance with their party platform. In order for a vote to pass, prime minister Tony Abbott would have to grant his MPs a free vote.
