I've been watching this thread that I started and thank those who have replied. I have a marriage date on a birth record, but Scotland's People doesn't have the certificate of marriage. I gave the specific date and where I found the date, and got a reply from Scotland's People that they don't help with searches. That wasn't my problem, and then they said, and I quote:
If you think a record has been missed out however then please contact GROS
as we cannot check that as we do not hold those original records -
I wondered if it had anything to do with the religion of the happy couple?
