SSM to become legal in 2017 is the $2.00 favourite – Price of legalisation this year shortens from $2.20 – Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has adjusted its prices of the date of same-sex marriage becoming legal in Australia.
A breakthrough in 2017 has firmed from $2.20 into $2.00 and is now the clear favourite.
2018 has drifted from $2.30 out to $2.70, but is still much more likely than 2019 or later, or never which is steady at $4.00.
“Up until now, it was touch and go whether we’d see legalisation in 2017 or next year, but the path is becoming much clearer for a decision before the end of the year,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
