freedom to marry anywhere in england without living in area

Comment 13th July 2010

To remove the restrictions that require someone from Scotland/NI having to set up residency for 8 days in the English/Welsh district they wish to register their intention to marry. 

Myself and fiance want to get married in England but due to ancient  outdated laws we have to live there for 8 days and register our intention on 9th day. We are having a registry wedding in a hotel. You should be able to get married outdoors also.

Why does this matter?

It allows any Uk resident to get married anywhere in Uk without discrimination. It is also an easy restriction to get round with a little effort. Ie a family or friend living in the district can say you were living with them even though you were not ,so why not just remove the law.  This also allows the couple to get the wedding they want and brings money into the local businesses who are holding the event.
