Still Married in Canada

The future of same-sex marriage is secured in Canada, as a Conservative bill to revisit the issue failed 175-123 on a free vote. More MPs supported same-sex marriage than in the last vote on the issue in June 2005. This effectively closes the issue in Canada, meaning that Jay and I will be married in Canada forever.

It still means nothing legally here in the States, but (with a hat tip to my Mum) it might well make a difference should we decide to move to Australia, where my home state of South Australia has just passed an equal-rights law for domestic partners both heterosexual and same-sex, bringing it in line with other Australian states.
