Last week, voters in Ireland approved a measure to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples. On Monday, the issue surfaces again in Australia, where the opposition party plans to introduce a bill to replace the words “man and woman” and “husband and wife” with “two people” in the country’s marriage law.
Parliament overwhelmingly rejected a bill to redefine marriage three years ago. If it does come up again, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said his party would make the decision whether to bring a new bill forward.
