I have an incident that occurred a year and a half ago with the Rockhampton hospital. My same sex partner(of 5 years now, at the time 3 and a half) had ended in hospital requiring immediate surgery. Although we have both listed each other as next of kin, I was still not allowed any information because I wasn’t considered a family member. There were complications during the surgery that were fairly serious. I believe that giving us marriage equality will help in the formal acknowledgement of our relationship without this kind of incident occurring again.
