After my first marriage I said I will never get married again , just go out and have fun

last bird I was seeing one night (we were both drunk) I was like "we should get married"

thank fuck , she didn't take me up on that - turned out to be a nightmare, complete mentalist

dodged a bullet there

but my point is - even though we all know its bullshit, we bring it on ourselves

They're handy Al, let's be honest. If you get hold of a good un they'll do everything as long as you bung em a few notes every week.

As I always say though, a dog's more loyal. Just lock em both in the boot of your car for two hours and then see which one's pleased to see you..

Do they state anything as justification for this?
I don’t know what the justification is, it kind of contradicts our tax laws because a single person has less tax benefits.

https://www.gotocourt.com.au/family-law/de-facto-relationships/
A de facto relationship is a relationship in which a couple lives together on a genuine domestic basis. This definition is the same across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Northern Territory, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania, and the Australian Capital Territory.

Couples who are same sex or opposite sex are included in the definition of de facto relationship under Australian law. A couple by marriage or who are related by family cannot be considered to be in a de facto relationship. However, if a person is legally married they can still be considered to be in a de facto relationship with another person they are not married to.

A person would not have a de facto partner unless they have lived together as a couple for two years without separation. Therefore, the length of time to be considered de facto is two years. However, if there are children or substantial contributions to joint property, exceptions are made to this rule.

Because the definition of de facto depends on the particular circumstances of a couple, the law has formulated a set of factors to determine whether a couple are (or were) de facto or if it is less-serious. The factors which the law considers when determining whether a couple is in a de facto relationship include the following:

There is no singular meaning of a de facto relationship. Each case is examined individually and the specific circumstances of the relationship taken into consideration. You can also be considered to be in more than one de facto relationship at a time. The Family Law Act 1975 specifically acknowledges that a person can be in a de facto relationship regardless if they are in another de facto relationship. Meaning that a de facto relationship does not need to be mutually exclusive.

Marriage is fuckin archaic and, with very few exceptions, utterly pointless.

I'll never understand the motivation for willingly agreeing to this, tbh.

In America there's actually tax benefits to getting married, ffs. I don;t see how this can be legal in 2019. It discriminates against certain people who stand next to no chance of getting married. Like...recluses and socially awkward undiagnosed retards.

never knew you were married
Nah, I'm not. Looking that way, though. She's pretty good. Only one I've ever looked at as wife material. My best mate's wife got drunk a few months ago, sat me down and gave me a big lecture about how great my missus is, what an obviously great match we are, how happy they all are for me, and if I ever cheat on her or break up with her, they're keeping her because if we break up, clearly I don't know what is good for me anyway. :lol::thumbsup

:hat

They are all married.
Personally I went out last night for dinner (Wednesday), played darts at my friend’s place for 2 hours, drank 6 beers, was still hungry so I grabbed a kebab on the way home.
My alarm went off this morning so I farted and hit the snooze button, it went off again so I farted again and went to work. I’ve stopped for a quick pint because I’m watching the local darts GF tonight in town and when I get home there will be nobody moaning that I’ve “put the milk in the fridge the wrong way.”
How the fuck is there a wrong way to put the milk in the fridge?
