Same-sex marriage being considered in Scotland

A recent Scottish Social Attitudes survey found that more than 60% of people believe same-sex couples should have the right to marry, compared with 19% who disagree, so the Scottish Government has begun gathering views on whether same-sex marriage should be made legal. A 14-week project asks if marriage in Scotland should be allowed for gay people through a civil or religious ceremony. Currently same-sex couples can enter a civil partnership which carries full legal rights but the ceremony cannot be conducted in a church or other religious premises.
