1. Humanist figures only refer to sheriff courts whose data collection now has a separate Humanist category.
If there were Humanist divorces granted in the Court of Session, they would be recorded under 'Civil'.
2. This includes a very small number of irregular marriages. Irregular marriages which took place in Scotland before
May 2006 can be made legal when established by a decree of declarator are rare, accounting for just 0.03 per cent of all civil and irregular marriages that took place over the last 50 years. More detailed data are available from the marriage and civil partnership section of the National Records of Scotland website. https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/statistics-and-data/statistics/statistics-by-theme/vital-events/general-publications/vital-events-reference-tables/2018/section-7-marriages
