Good Luck.
Possible new marriage laws in Scotland could allow Jedi Knights to marry people. This means people could choose either priest or Star Wars warrior to perform their wedding ceremony. Scotland's government wants to give couples more choices when they tie knot. It currently has two kinds of weddings – religious marriages and civil partnerships. Politicians want to add third choice for people who believe in things other than religions. A government spokeswoman said groups like Jedi Knights and other "belief bodies" would have to pass test before they can carry out marriages. There are around 177,000 British people who say they are Jedi Knights, making them biggest "alternative religion" in Britain.

Free Church of Scotland has raised concerns about possible new laws. Church spokesman Iver Martin, told BBC: " third category is quite astonishing because it [doesn't define] what 'belief' means." He added that 'belief' could be anything and could let all kinds of groups perform marriages. Jedi Knights say they already have their own system for weddings. This includes Jedi marriage vows where Jedi Knight asks happy couple: "In forces of darkness and forces of light, wherever you may go and whatever you may face, do you promise to share your life in marriage?" Other groups that could perform weddings include Flat Earth Society, which believes Earth is flat disk.
