Long Description

This contract pays $1 if the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill, or another bill which has the effect of allowing marriage between two people regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity receives Royal assent in 2013. Otherwise this contract pays $0.

Judging Criteria 

To pay $1, the bill must allow marriage between two people regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

The text of the Bill currently before Parliament can be found here: http://www.legislation.govt.nz/bill/member/2012/0039/latest/whole.html?search=ta_bill_M_bc%40bcur_an%40bn%40rn_25_a&p=1

This contract will close at $1 if, subject to other conditions in this contract, an alternative bill receives Royal assent in 2013 if it has the effect of allowing marriage between two people regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

If the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill is renamed, then this contract will follow the renamed bill.

In the event the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill is withdrawn and ipredict is satisfied no bill which has the effect of allowing marriage between two people regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity is likely to receive Royal assent in 2013, then this contract will immediately close at $0. ipredict reserves the right to leave this contract open for any reason until 2014.

ipredict's judgement is final

This contract will be closed no later than 3 working days after the Close Date. The Close Date may be extended if the event outcome cannot be determined by that date.
