    Abstract

    Examines whether marriage should be opened to same sex couples in Scotland and legislatively how easy it would be to achieve. Notes the countries that have adopted same sex marriages, and highlights the European Court of Human Rights decision in Schalk v Austria (30141/04) on the right to marry. Considers whether adultery as a ground for divorce should be limited to heterosexual couples, and addresses the conducting of same sex marriage by religious officiants which may be contrary to their faith.
