A Humanist wedding is a wedding that is non-religious.

It is also not a civil ceremony. Because there are no civil or religious restrictions, the couple can personalize their ceremony as much as they’d like, and can marry wherever thy’d like. The couple would still have to register their marriage so it is legal.

According to the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service, couples who have Humanist weddings are less likely to divorce than couples who have other types of weddings. Specifically:

Couples who participate in Humanist weddings:

– Are three times less likely to divorce than Roman Catholic marriages over the same time period.
– Over two times less likely to divorce than Church of Scotland marriages.
– Almost four times less likely to divorce than civil marriages.

In general, divorce rates are declining in the UK. Humanist weddings became legal in Scotland in 2005, and are becoming more and more popular.

In 2017-2018, there were 5,702 Humanist weddings, 3,166 Church of Scotland weddings, 1,182 Roman Catholic weddings, and 14,702 civil ceremonies.
