And written by a female reporter no less.
Looks to me like someone is laying the groundwork to restrict an Aussies ability to sponsor a R/U bride. You know to "protect them from themselves". I'd bet that Aussie women are starting to complain.

And no two hands are quite the same
But I've never seen a winner that didn't bet
