Scotland

The Scottish Government introduced the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill in the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday, 26 June 2013. The Bill would introduce same-sex marriage and also make various general changes to the law on marriage and civil partnerships.  The Bill includes a spousal veto that amends the 2004 Gender Recognition Act to allow a spouse to block their spouse’s acquisition of a full Gender Recognition Certificate.  The UK passed a law this summer with a similar spousal veto.
