You've probably heard of running away to Gretna Green to be married. Well the same rules apply to civil partnership and same sex marriage. There are no residential qualifications required for those registering their civil partnership/marriage north of the Border or parental consent required. Scotland thus has the competitive edge for British couples who do not wish to be bound by these regulations, or for overseas couples who want to fly in just for the ceremony.
