Same-sex marriage has been a debatable issue all over the world. The matter has also been a bone of contention in Australia over the years. However, the same has been legalized in Australia since December 9, 2017. The Australian parliament passed the law under the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Act 2017.

Following the law, a survey was conducted in Australia where 61.6 percent of the respondents supported same-sex marriage. Previously, the same-sex marriage was rejected as many as 22 times by the Federal Parliament between September 2004 and May 2017. However, after speculations surrounding the act, the law finally saw the daylight in the second week of December last year.

Jonassen to tie the knot

Prior to the enactment of the law, Megan Schutt, the Australian Women’s fast bowler announced her gay marriage with her partner Jess Holyoake. Celebrating their victory, Schutt posted a picture on Twitter along with her partner. Most recently, another Australia women’s cricketer in Jessica Jonassen vowed to enter wedlock with her partner.

Subsequently, she took to Twitter, a social media platform, and expressed her delight. She wrote “Could not ask for a better person to spend the rest of my life with what a night!

Jessica Jonassen made her debut in 2012 when Australian Women locked horns in New Zealand Women in a T20 International at Sydney. The left-arm off-break bowler has been in prime form lately. She played in Australia’s recently concluded One Day International series against India. The Meg Lanning-led team whitewashed Mithali Raj’s women in the three-match series.

Jonassen emerged as the highest wicket-taker in the series with eight wickets in three games. She also conceded runs at an economy rate of 4.06, which is considered stupendous in a generation of slam-bam cricket.
