After the nation redefined its marriage law in December, Jo Grant and Jill Kindt obtained an exemption from an official waiting period.
Ms Grant died from cancer on 30 January, less than seven weeks after marrying Ms Kindt. They had been together for eight years.
“Jo and I got to be legally married for 48 days – I’ll take that,” Ms Kindt.
Their historic marriage was made public in Queensland‘s parliament by state Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath.
