Gay marriage is officially legal in Scotland.
Members of Scottish Parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of same-sex marriage this evening (4 February).
There was huge standing ovation as the votes were announced. Politicians voted Yes 105, No 18 and there was no abstentions.
This means Scotland is the 17th country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage.
The new legislation, described as one of the most ‘progressive’ equal marriage bills in the world, will allow religious bodies to opt in to perform same-sex unions.
