When can a wedding be called off?

To annul a marriage, couples must prove that the marriage was never legally valid, or meet one of the reasons that makes it “voidable”.

The marriage is not legally valid if:

  • You are closely related to the person you married
  • One or both of you were under 16
  • One of you was already married or in a civil partnership

The marriage is “voidable” if:

  • You have not had sex with the person you married since marriage (does not apply to same-sex couples)
  • You did not properly consent to the marriage
  • The other person had a sexually transmitted disease (STD) when you got married
  • Your partner was pregnant with someone else when you got married
  • A spouse is switching to a different gender

Scott, who is from Dundee, Scotland and represented the Healey & Whitworth neighborhood in the 2019 Rossendale City Council election, only asked Emma Thompson to write the script.

The ex-couple also said they were eager to start having double dates, with Jo now a couple with young doctor Wendy Rennie.

“Wendy and I are dying to have a double date with Scott +1,” she admitted on Twitter. “A double marriage would be incredible! ”

Social media users praised the couple and claimed it looked like something from the pages of a Richard Curtis script, like Notting Hill, Love Actually, or Four Weddings and a Funeral.

One of them wrote: ‘Oh my god these are bananas. I LIVE !!!!!’ as another put it, “Thanks for sharing this. Absolutely made my day. Very happy for both of you!”

A third added: ‘What an eventful month. Glad you both live happily and honest with yourselves.

Scott’s original tweet, which spanned over 12,000 times, read: “I composed and deleted this tweet thousands of times, but here it is: I’m gay.

“The ones I have told so far have been wonderful, and I am more grateful to them than they think. It’s liberating to be able to be myself and I can’t wait to see what’s next. ‘
