Scotland: Government Is Moving Ahead with Marriage Equality Bill

Written by scott on June 21st, 2013

ScotlandAfter watching England and Wales pull ahead in the marriage equality race, Scotland is once again moving forward with its own bill. Gay Star News reports:

The devolved government are expected to finally outline their proposals to legalize same-sex marriage next week. Going one step further than England and Wales, they are also expected to allow straight couples to enter civil partnerships. Civil partnerships were first made legal in 2005, giving gay couples the ability to register their unions. They were given similar, but not all, the same legal recognition as married heterosexuals.

Anyone over there know how quickly this could move through Parliament in Scotland?
