The same-sex marriage bill was introduced to the Lower House today, and shortly after, Liberal MP Tim Wilson proposed to his long-term partner Ryan Bolger while addressing the House. Tim and Ryan have been engaged for nine years, but Tim reaffirmed his proposal.
Ryan, a school teacher, was present for the proposal and said, "Yes", which, after the Speaker reiterated, "That was a yes, a resounding yes." All sides of politics broke out in applause.
