A beautiful love story, married overseas with a token ceremony here in Australia that we were honoured to be a part of. There was a real sense of buoyancy in Robert’s voice when he talks of their relationship. Like pure and simple joy – and pride – in who they are and what they have created. It may be the fact the couple were married last year, or perhaps that after such a long time together the respect can depend. In a country that has failed to legalise same-sex marriage, we forget the ordinarily beautiful love stories that are behind the politics. We forget the remarkably unremarkable. Their love is no different. And nor should their relationship statuses have to be.
