YES YES YES

The Scottish Parliament has voted overwhelmingly in favour of the introduction of the Marriage and Civil Partnerships (Scotland) Bill with 98 votes for to 15 votes against with 5 abstentions, after three hours of civil and generous debate.

Crying. Laughing. Swearing.

Oh my God, we did it.

If you’re looking for anything more articulate than that, you could do worse than watch this video and this video, and you could also watch Kelvin, who is the Provost of St Mary’s Cathedral, talking about it on Scotland Tonight on STV at 10.55pm. I’m going away to cry and scream some more. I would go out and dance down Sauchiehall Street in my socks if it weren’t November. It’s that kind of night.

(Oh, prospective wives, the line forms to the right.)
