Get me to the church - John (89) and Arthur (85) to wed after half century together
Australians make history with vote to legalise same-sex marriage
A couple believed to be Australia's oldest same-sex partners say they plan to marry in January after a half-century together but "not with any fuss" following the emphatic vote to legalise same-sex marriage.
As same-sex couples started to plan weddings, John Challis (89) and Arthur Cheeseman (85) said the historic vote "gives us a new dignity".
At their home in Sydney, Mr Cheeseman and Mr Challis said they plan to marry next year - either at a nearby registry office, or at home with a civil celebrant and a cup of coffee.
The couple met by chance in 1967 at an art gallery.
