Earlier today, we found out Australians voted resoundingly in favour of same-sex marriage.
Over 79.5 per cent of eligible voters returned their papers and every single state and territory recorded a yes.
Now it's up to the government to action this vote.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull promised same-sex marriage will be legalised 'before Christmas'.
But what were the general reactions from other politicians? From tears to despair, here's how they took the news:
No campaigners were far from stoked but will respect the public vote...
Do ex-pollies count?
John Howard says religious freedoms and 'parental rights' should be protected.
And Tony Abbott congratulated the 'Yes campaign' then paradoxically, the people who voted 'No'.
