Coalition delays same-sex couple laws

“CONSERVATIVE MPs have attempted to thwart moves to recognise gay partners in the same way as married couples in public sector superannuation laws…the Coalition yesterday resolved to delay the move with a Senate inquiry, and try to broaden the issue beyond gays to cover other interdependent relationships.”

The Age

I’m not opposed to including other forms of relationships in the legislation but it seems to me that the Coalition is just using that as an excuse to hold off giving rights to queer couples. Argh!
