This Aussie Couple Will DIVORCE If Same Sex Marriage Passes
It could very awkward for a Christian couple who may have put their foot in it two years ago when they announced they would divorce if same sex marriage is legalised.
Though the result today won’t immediately change anything, it’s an indication to parliament what the overarching public want - and means that sooner or later, change is imminent.
Husband and wife Nick and Sarah Jensen sparked controversy in 2015 when Mr Jensen announced they would end their decade-long legal union if gay marriage becomes law.
'This has been a big decision for my wife and I,' Mr Jensen wrote for Canberra's CityNews. 'The truth is, "marriage" is simply too important...
'It has always been understood to be that exclusive relationship where one man and one woman become "one flesh".
'Any attempt to change the definition of marriage by law is not something in which we are able to partake''. With the overarching feeling it’ll be a ‘yes’ vote, everyone is wondering what the Jensens will do.
Contacted this week, Mr Jensen said the couple will wait to see what any change to the marriage law is before publicly announcing their future plans.
'We just need to see the legislation and if it all goes that way,' he said. '....Then we know what situation we're in and what we're going to do.'
