On a Scottish university academics are making a board game about marriage. They hope that people will understand marriage, and all legal aspects of that beter after playing the game.
Legally Wed, that’s the name of the game. Players will plan a wedding and need to be the first up the aisle to win this game. Venue, food, outfit: everything need to be taken care of. But they also need the go through other steps that are required to legally marry.
The head of the school explained to thenational.scot why this game is so important: “The legal consequences of marriage – and the legal differences between marriage and long-term cohabitation – are poorly understood. Our research has explored how the law regulating marriage, divorce and cohabitation is applied in practice by the courts, solicitors and other legal practitioners in Scotland.”
The game is now being developed.
