■The General Register Office for Scotland (GROS) marriage records show that the number of marriages have decreased steadily since 1951. There is some evidence that marriages have stabilised at around 30,000 per year. However, 1 in 6 of these marriages take place in Gretna Green, the majority of which are between non-Scottish residents. Overall, 29% of recent marriages in Scotland are between non-Scottish residents.
