An emotional Wilson then turned to his partner, who was smiling and sitting in the public gallery: "Ryan Patrick Bolger, will you marry me?"

Mr Bolger was present in the chamber for the proposal and said "yes", prompting applause from all sides of politics.

Acting speaker Rob Mitchell asking for the answer, "a resounding yes" to be recorded in Hansard. The bill received the Senate's approval last week.

An Australian MP has proposed to his partner in parliament amid a debate on marriage equality.

"They are the answer to the question we can not ask".

The outspoken advocate for same-sex marriage used debate on the marriage equality bill to ask his partner Ryan Bolger to marry him on Monday morning. "Congratulations. Well done, mate".

The former Australian human rights commissioner delivered his speech as lawmakers prepare to legalise same sex marriage following a national vote in which almost 62 percent of citizens voted in favour of legalisation.

He's not the first politician to use public debate in a marriage proposal.

"This bill is about marriage and only about marriage", he said.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott, a fierce no campaigner, flagged amendments to the bill, but said he will be voting in favour of legalising same-sex marriage. "But the Australian people have now answered that for me".

"We got here thanks to the hard work and passionate campaigning of so many people across the country who stood up for a fair go for all".

"The message today, to every gay person in this nation, is clear", Turnbull added.

She told her fellow politicians: "When Bob retired, in 2012, I said to him: 'Bob, I'm really sorry that we weren't able to reverse that very bad law before your time was up'".
