Question Answer

Why is it difficult to find Marriage Rituals relating to Indigenous Australians?

Related to Ceremony

The most common issue is, that apart from there being 2 main types of Indigenous Australians (Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders), each tribe has it's own distinct beliefs, ceremonies and rituals. There is no 'one-size-fits-all', so it is important to research the ceremonial practices of your selected tribe or blood ancestry

When the law eventually changes will the same rules apply to gay couples that already apply to heterosexual couples?

Related to Legalities

The Australian Marriage Act 1961 is quite explicit regarding the basic rules for marriage. I expect the rules will be the same for gay same sex couples.
