CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Five lawmakers have registered their opposition to Australia’s bill allowing same-sex marriage across the nation.

The bill passed Thursday by a majority that was not challenged, though the five lawmakers’ positions opposing the bill were recorded.

The bill changes the definition of marriage from a union between a man and a woman to “a union of two people.”

After royal assent and other formalities, the law will likely take effect in about a month.
