Love is love
On the 9th December 2017, Same - sex marriages became legal in Australia. I for one was very happy that now everyone was free to marry regardless of their sex.
As a young child, I was brought up to accept everyone as they are. My parents were very broad minded, down to earth people, and I just know this has definitely held me in good stead for the relationships and friendships that I have developed and also given me an open minded approach in life.
One family that I got to know almost 11 years ago through the sad time when they lost their mother and grandmother, have remained in touch with me since that time. Needless to say I was tickled pink when I was asked to officiate at the marriage ceremony for this family's son and his partner.
At our meetings, I got to know these two young men a lot better, and it was clear for all to see that they are most definitely extremely happy and very much in love.
