The Ring Cycle, part two  

While the marriage rate is slowly declining, most Australians will still get married at some point in their lives. And chances are they won’t do it on the cheap.

And why are marriage rights—and rites—so important for so many in the gay community? In pursuit of the meaning of marriage, now that it’s not strictly necessary, Fenella Souter asks everyone from a priest to a pair of happy husbands for their views.
