On Thursday, the Australian Parliament voted to allow same-sex marriage across the nation, following a divisive debate settled by a much-criticized ballot survey that strongly endorsed change. The public gallery of the House of Representatives erupted with applause when the bill passed to change the definition of marriage from solely between a man and a woman to "a union of two people." According to NBC, gay marriage was endorsed by 62 percent of Australian voters who responded to the government-commissioned postal ballot.
