We have always been supporters of this measure, so now that gay couples will be able to marry (as of midnight tonight) we feel it’s cause to celebrate.
It will be wonderful to know who the first few couples to take up this new right will be and no doubt there will be news items following these journeys, which we will look forward to reading.
We would like to wish these couples, and all those that follow, a fantastic life together and may yours be a happy ever after.
