Today Her Majesty gave Royal assent to the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act meaning that gay and humanist weddings will be able to take place in England and Wales. Living in Scotland, while part of the United Kingdom (for now), our parliament must pass its own bill before same sex marriage can take place here. With this in mind, my fiancé Heather and I have chosen to boycott marriage until everyone in Scotland, gay or straight, is able to marry!
We believe that if two people love each other they should be able to celebrate that love through marriage just as much as we can. We honestly find the idea that this is even something that needs to be questioned quite baffling.
We are proud to be allies of equal marriage and want to help spread the word. For all those who do think there is an issue, to carry on Stonewall’s message, some people are gay, get over it!
