marriage rights laws for people with intellectual disabilities in Australia

Hi everyone,

Do you know of any resources (websites, books etc) on marriage rights (especially forced marriage) for people with intellectual disabilities in Australia (especially ones in simple English)? Are there specific sections in our laws on marriage for people with disabilities, and forced marriage? I already know about IDRS, and I've read their book on rights in general (it doesn't discuss marriage much, however). My friend is researching this, as she works with people with intellectual disabilities and wants to teach them their marriage rights, so that they can stand up for themselves and avoid exploitation.

I'd love to hear from you all, and I would definitely appreciate hearing constructive advice and feedback. Thanks very much!
