Legalize gay marriage Islands authorities have decided once did England, Wales and Scotland. As noted by a local resident Meralda Warren, the islands do not have same-sex couples. Only one the locals call themselves gay. “The inhabitants of the island did not insist on the legalization of same-sex marriage. But at the same time, it happens everywhere. So why not?” – she said.
However, the island may be a problem with the formation of gay marriage as the only priest living on Pitcairn, a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, opposes same-sex unions.
