Practicing Christian and unionist Ruth Davidson recently became engaged to her partner Jen Wilson and has said she would love it if the Church of Scotland allowed her to get married in her own church. Northern Ireland is the only part of the British Isles where gay marriage remains outlawed, and Ms Davidson insists people living there should be afforded the same rights as everybody else. She said: "And I believe that time is coming. And soon. With public support and parliamentary majority the waters are building and the dam will burst."
