Earlier this year, the British Antarctic Territory proposed a bill to bring their marriage legislation in line with UK marriage laws.

The Marriage Ordinance 2016 will allow the purchase of a license to conduct a marriage and licenses to allow marriages to take place.

The bill will be under consultation until September 30th.

Although the area has no natives and is inhabited mostly by scientists, the British Antarctic Territory receives scores of tourists every year.
