Scottish Government Unveils Marriage Equality Bill
Scotland is the latest country (just this week) to inch closer towards marriage equality and yesterday it became the first part of the United Kingdom to publish legislation allowing gay marriage.

The Scottish government will introduce a public consultation on the draft of its proposed bill through March 2013 before it heads to Parliament for a vote. Currently, Scotland offers civil partnerships to same-sex couples, though if the bill passes the country could see its first gay marriage ceremonies by either 2014 or 2015.

Much like England's bill, religious and belief organizations would need to "opt in" to perform same-sex marriages, though both the Church of Scotland and the Roman Catholic Church oppose the measure.
