Australia’s Capital Territory has again legalized same-sex unions.
Two previous attempts were overturned by the national government, which has cited a national law that bans legal statuses that mimic marriage.
Local legislators this time banned straight couples from entering into civil unions so as not to “mimic” marriage. It is unknown if the attorney general will allow the new law to stand.
