Gay Star News reports:
The first same sex weddings in England and Wales will be able to take place from Saturday 29 March 2014, Women and Equalities Minister Maria Miller announced today (10 December). Following the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 successfully completing its journey through Parliament in July 2013, the government has been working to ensure that all the arrangements are in place to enable same sex couples to marry as soon as possible. As a result of this work, the first weddings in England and Wales will now be able to happen several months earlier than the government anticipated.
That’s great news for same-sex couples in England and Wales, who had to endure a longer waiting period than most places that have passed marriage equality. Will Scotland get its act together to let couples marry at the same time?
