Relationships and marriage

Relationships register

The Relationships Register allows couples, regardless of their sex, gender identity or intersex status, to register their relationship and have their status as a couple formally and legally recognised. It will mean people will have a clear avenue to have their relationship legally recognised, but also will make the process of accessing their entitlements and asserting their rights, including in situations of a medical nature, far simpler.

Registering a relationship

Right to marry

The right to marry under Australian law is no longer determined by sex or gender identity. Same-sex marriage is now legal in Australia.
