From Maureen, on this post www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,645844.msg4934533.html#msg4934533

To all who tried to help.
All the information on marriage regular and irregular is contained on a podcast from Glasgow University at
http://workingclassmarriage.gla.ac.uk/the-team/
It contains an amazing amount of information on the legality of marriages mainly in Scotland from the 17th century up until 1939 but also contrasts the differences in England and other parts of Europe.
The podcast is the basis of an article on irregular marriages soon to be published in 'The Journal of Social History'

One of my ancestor's, has his christian and surname changed on his 1857 Scottish birth certificate, on the 23 July he has the same name as his named father, lo and behold on the 15th of September all change he is a different person. Not fair!
