When the “marriage license” is a tool, it is a source of great pain and frustration.
It is a barrier to marriage, and the rights of those who are married are at risk.
In a new report, Marriage Aid, the Equality Campaign and Marriage Equality WA say the “license” is “inherently discriminatory” and “a fundamental infringement on marriage” for couples who have to apply for the document to marry.
The document states: “The Marriage Act provides a formal document which sets out the legal status of persons who are legally married.”
It says: “It is the intention of the Parliament that all persons lawfully married to each other, including the minor children of such marriages, should be entitled to a marriage license, to be used to obtain and to issue a marriage certificate.”
Marriage Act: how it’s written (PDF) Married same-sex couples have applied to the Department of Human Services to have a marriage licence issued, with the aim of marrying in a state-owned and managed venue.
The report says the “married same-gender couple who seek to marry in Western Commonwealth state or territory jurisdictions shall be required to obtain a marriage document from the Registrar of a recognised venue”. “
The marriage certificate shall be issued by a Departmental Registrar.”
The report says the “married same-gender couple who seek to marry in Western Commonwealth state or territory jurisdictions shall be required to obtain a marriage document from the Registrar of a recognised venue”.
It also says “the marriage licence is an integral part of the celebrants and legal service for all same-Gender marriages in Western Territory”.
The Marriage Department says it does not “actively monitor” whether couples who apply for a marriage can have a “marriage document issued”. “
A valid marriage licence can be renewed for up to three years from the date of issue.”
The Marriage Department says it does not “actively monitor” whether couples who apply for a marriage can have a “marriage document issued”.
In April, it released an updated version of the Marriage Act which includes a provision that “marriage certificates may be renewed or amended at any time”.
Marriages Act: what you need to know about it (PDF, 1.5MB) “The Marriage Acts purpose is to ensure that all marriages in Australia are legally recognised and recognised in Western countries, and that those who want to marry should be able to do so,” a spokesman for the Department told ABC Radio Perth.
“However, marriage certificates cannot be used for all purposes.”
“If you need a marriage to be issued in another jurisdiction, you can obtain one through a document issued by the Registrar’s Office, which is required by the Marriage Acts purposes.”
“This allows for a variety of circumstances in which a document may be valid.”
Mr Hensley said it was a matter for the State government.
“I think there is a need for more people to understand what the Marriage ACT actually does and how it is used,” he said.
“People need to be able understand what marriage is and why it’s important.”
This has a lot of importance to young people and families, and to families who are considering marriage.
Marjorie said that was the case with the “Marriages Bill” that was being considered in Parliament. “
In the future, it would certainly be a disservice to families to make them think this is something they can’t get a marriage and that it’s something that they’re not entitled to,” she said.
Marjorie said that was the case with the “Marriages Bill” that was being considered in Parliament.
The bill was introduced by the Minister for Marriage, Greg Hunt.
Ms Scott said the bill was a “huge step forward” and had “been an absolutely brilliant opportunity for community engagement”.
She said she was “excited” the Minister had taken it upon himself to ensure the legislation was not “used to discriminate against people in marriage”.
The Equality Campaign has written to the Minister to say it will “continue to call for changes to the Marriage laws” in the wake of the report.
