WHEREAS marriage is an institution the maintenance of which in its purity the public is deeply interested in;

WHEREAS marriage is the foundation of family and society, without which there would be neither civilization nor progress;

Also, in the same legislation update they will make it easier for trans people to change their birth certificates.
