TWO months ago, millions of survey forms were mailed to eligible Australian voters asking if they believed same-sex marriage should be legalised.

At 9am on Wednesday Queensland time, the result of the survey will be revealed.

The controversial survey which cost $122 million to conduct, has been a heavy weight carried by many same-sex couples.

"It could go either way so we don't really want to get our hopes up."

"In our eyes, Nicole and I are already married," she said.

"For those who want to see the marriage certificate, they're the ones waiting."
