Same sex marriage news update from Scotland

The first same sex marriage ceremonies in Scotland will commence on December 31st 2014. To prepare the way, the National Records of Scotland has announced that same sex couples will be able to give notice of intention to marry from December 16th, with an updated marriage notice to be made available from that date.

There's also an update in the announcement for those wishing to convert civil partnerships to marriages, and for married people seeking a Gender Recognition Certificate without the need for a divorce.
