Same sex couples have married in prison in other countries and it is possible that they will be allowed to do so in Australia.

www.google.com.au/search?q=same+sex+prisoners+to+marry&rlz=1C1CAFB_enAU718AU718&oq=same+sex+prisoners+to+marry&aqs=chrome..69i57j0.19635j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Some local supposition from the Daily Telegraph's paid site blurb,

"Do prison inmates deserve same sex marriage?
MOST Australians voted to support marriage equality. And it hasnít taken long for the inevitable question to be raised: Do those same rights and privileges extend to that section of the community who are imprisoned?"

What think ye?

Same-sex couples have been married in prison for decades if not for centuries. The latest change in legislation has not effect on marriage anyway, only on government's legal idea of marriage, which matters not anyway.

Perhaps they could disallow it in the same way prisoners are not allowed to vote? I have no strong opinion either way, although I think the case could be made that they should wait until both inmates are out of prison. Given how unnatural a prison environment is, it seems unlikely that a prison couple would continue the relationship after release, anyway.

AJ,

What if they are both in for 'life' or longer?

Are our prisons today more focused on
punishment than crime prevention or
community safety?

Do we have a humane prison system?

Do Australian prison authorities allow
sexual conduct with inmates. It is
condoned and acceptable?

Felons having sex on taxpayer-bought sheets -
is this a hard picture to sell?

Quite frankly I don't see same-sex marriages
in prison happening any time soon.
