The Rudd government’s position on marriage and civil partnerships is clear. The Rudd government supports the development of a nationally consistent framework that provides the opportunity for all couples who have a mutual commitment to a shared life to have their relationship officially recognised. These schemes are to be implemented consistent with maintaining the definition of ‘marriage’ in the Marriage Act.
