A marriage by "cohabitation with repute" as it was known in Scots Law could still be formed; popularly described as "by habit and repute", with repute being the crucial element to be proved.
In 2006, Scotland was the last European jurisdiction to abolish this old style common-law marriage or "marriage by cohabitation with repute", by the passing of the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006.
However, in Scotland it was possible for boys to get married at 14 years and girls at 12 years without parental consent.

The Act required consent to the marriage from the parents if a party to a marriage was not at least 21 years old.In September 2011, the Scottish Government launched a public consultation on the introduction of same-sex marriage, with the Scottish Government indicating it "tend[ed] towards the view that same-sex marriage should be introduced".In the late Middle Ages and early modern era, women could marry from the age of 12 (while for boys it was from 14) and, while many girls from the social elite married in their teens, most in the Lowlands married only after a period of life-cycle service, in their twenties.An irregular marriage could result from mutual agreement, by a public promise followed by consummation, or by cohabitation and repute.All but the last of these were abolished by the Marriage (Scotland) Act 1939, from 1 July 1940.
One member of the class Flying Scotsman is with-out doubt the worlds best known steam locomotive and certainly the most traveled.
