David Pocock is straight and he proposed a woman named Emma 8 years ago, she said ‘yes’. But they did not marry, because David is very LGBT supportive and he thought it would be unfair for him to marry wile his gay and lesbian friends could only dream about hearing the wedding bells.“Being brought up in a Christian home and still identifying as Christian, I get pretty annoyed with the Christian lobbies around the world who say gay marriage destroys the family and all that kind of rubbish. They claim to follow someone who always stood up for the oppressed and marginalized. I guess it is a fear of the unknown – if you talk to someone who doesn’t like gay people you can almost guarantee that they don’t know too many. These are the prejudices that you have to challenge and break down. Emma and I decided not to get legally married until our gay friends could do the same,” he said by then. His homeland, Australia, recognized marriage equality a year ago, so David decided that it was a right time for him to finally call Emma his wife – a person who did not lose her patience and waited for 8 years really deserved the greatest wedding ever! The pair held a small private dress-down ceremony on December 2, as they finally tied the knot and submitted the paperwork to marry. David confirmed that he is now married to the best mate.
