Say ‘YES’ For Australia

As Australians who are committed to liberal and conservative values, we know marriage is an institution which builds stability, commitment and mutual responsibility.

That’s why we support the ‘YES’ case in the survey on marriage. All Australians should have the opportunity to show their commitment to the person they love through marriage.

We encourage the millions of Australians who vote for the Liberal and National Parties to join us in saying ‘YES’. Saying ‘YES’ will:

  1. Ensure all Australians – your family members, neighbours, friends and work colleagues – are treated fairly and equally in the legal recognition of their relationships;
  2. Deliver greater stability in committed relationships as the foundation for a stronger society;
  3. Recognise that great institutions like marriage can evolve and re ect a more respectful nation; the Marriage Act has changed 20 times since 1961.
  4. Provide for marriage for all while protecting religious views about marriage under a Coalition government.

Changes to the Marriage Act will simply ensure that relationships recognised under the law are treated equally. Ministers, churches and other religious organisations will retain their right to determine who they marry and don’t marry in accordance with their religious beliefs. Allowing same-sex couples to marry takes nothing from other relationships.

We are united in our support for ‘YES’ – and we urge all Australians to say ‘YES’.
