Australian Parliament legalizes same-sex marriage. 

The Australian Parliament passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage on Thursday, after the Senate passed the same legislation last week 43 votes to 12.

“What a day for love, for quality, for respect! Australia has done it,” Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told the House.

The law is expected to take effect in about a month.

With this new development, Australia joins the other 25 nations of the world that have legalized same sex marriage.
