Do we have any rights as a couple?

Same-sex couples are generally recognised as de facto couples in Australia.   Some states – the ACT, New South Wales, Tasmania, Queensland and Victoria – have a relationship registry which will help prove that you are in a de facto relationship, if necessary.   Otherwise, in most states a same-sex couple has the same rights as any other de facto couple.
