Nick and Sarah Jensen, a couple from Canberra, made a nationwide stir when, in 2015, they pledged to dissolve their marriage, despite being very much in love, if gay couples were also allowed to wed.
'My wife and I just celebrated out 10th wedding anniversary but later this year we may be getting a divorce,' Mr Jensen wrote in Canberra City News.
'My wife and I, as a matter of conscience, refuse to recognise the government’s regulation of marriage if its definition includes the solemnisation of same sex couples.'
However, Mr Jenson did claim that the their divorce would not be a traditional break up.
'After our divorce, we’ll continue to live together, hopefully for another 50 years. And, God willing, we’ll have more children. We’ll also continue to refer to each other as ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ and consider ourselves married by the Church and before God.'
Now, with Australia voting 'Yes' to the same-sex marriage plebiscite, many are wondering if the Jensen's are still determined to go de facto.
The Jensen's have refused to comment on the results of the same-sex marraige postal vote.
