If the State I live in recognises gay marriage am I legally married?

Related to Legalities

No. The Australian Marriage Act 1961 is a federal law, meaning that the States effectively have no power to change it (this must be done by the senate that sits in Canberra). Federal law covers the nation, whereas state-law is specific to that state only.

If I get married overseas in a country or state that allows same sex gay marriage, will it be recognised in Australia?

Related to Legalities

No, not at present (2016). In order for a gay marriage to be recognised by the Australian Government, the law (in Australia) would need to be changed accordingly. Gay couples who are married overseas are not recognised as married under Australian Law, however a gay couple is considered to be married by any country that currently allows legal same sex marriage.

What makes a gay same sex marriage different to a heterosexual marriage in Australia?

Related to Legalities

Firstly, gay same sex marriages are generally referred to as a committment ceremonies, and secondly there is no legal paperwork. The wording during a gay union must be different to a legal civil union, whilst there is also no government marriage certificate issued. There is also no filing with Births Deaths and Marriages after the ceremony, because the Australian government does not currently recognised gay same sex marriages as legal.
