Raks Says:
Good on you Scotland! As always, leading the way!


Cut and pasted from the BBC Website:

Scotland is set to become the first part of the UK to introduce gay marriage after the SNP government announced plans to make the change. Scottish ministers confirmed they would bring forward a bill on the issue.

Political leaders, equality groups and others support gay marriage, but it is strongly opposed by the Catholic Church and Church of Scotland.

Good for the Scottish Executive. Ahead of the game as you so rightly say. I hope that Gretna Green is ready for the influx of would be couples... :-))

Actually what will the status of a gay couple married in Scotland but living in another part of the UK be I wonder? Will English law have to uphold the marriage fully as they do for heterosexual couples? If so, the law might as well change here too sooner rather than later! :-))
