> Australia has taken a decisive step towards legislating marriage equality by Christmas after 61.6% of enrolled voters approved a change to the law to allow couples of the same sex to marry in an unprecedented national postal survey.

> The result, announced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on Wednesday, will lead to consideration of a same-sex marriage bill in parliament with the prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, promising marriage equality should be law by Christmas.

> With a turnout of 79.5% the result in the voluntary survey is considered a highly credible reflection of Australian opinion and gives marriage equality advocates enormous momentum to achieve the historic social reform.

Full of pride, Ger bursts out in the Aussie national anthem..

Australians all let us rejoice,
and have a cup of tea.
We've hum dee dum,
and rumpty pum,
and girt big bloody sea.

Our land is rich in natures things
and beauty tits and bears,
In every voice let's have a choice,
Advance Australia fair.
In every voice let's have a choice,
Advance Australia fair.

Can you explain how this gay marriage thing is going to work in Australia?

As I understand it from deep study of Monty Python sketches all the men in Australia are called Bruce and all the women are called Sheila. So, if two gay people get married they'll have the same surname; if their surname is Smith they'll both be Bruce Smith. Isn't that going to get really confusing?
