The Scottish government has not reached a decision today on whether to pursue marriage equality for gay couples, frustrating advocates of the move.
A decision was expected to be made and announced this afternoon after the meeting at First Minister Alex Salmond’s official residence, Bute House in Edinburgh.
The Scottish government has said it “tends towards the view” that gay couples should be allowed an equal right to marry to straight couples, a measure supported by the majority of MSPs, and that religious bodies should not be forced to hold wedding ceremonies against their beliefs.
