The Senate has approved legislation allowing same-sex couple to marry, with the vote 43-12 in favour of the bill. The legislation will now go to the House of Representatives in the week beginning 4 December, when conservatives will be seeking to move amendments to the legislation to allow for religious protection, something they were not able to achieve in the Senate. Labor Senate leader Penny Wong said the bill’s passage was cause for great celebration.
