The issue of whether gay marriages by foreign couples in Canada has finally been resolved. Several Australian gay couples who married in Canada were concerned after the issue of validity was raised. A lawyer had argued that Canadian marriages of gay couples who came from other nations was illegal. Canadian Justice Minister, Rob Nicolson, made clear a gay marriage in Canada was legal even if the nation from which a gay couple came did not sanction gay marriages.
The real issue is not in Canada. The issue resides in Australia whose government still refuses to allow gay marriages. Welcome to the 21st century, my Aussie friends!
