Weddings down

Statistics from the Government show that the proportion of people in the UK getting maried is the lowest its been since 1895. Combined with a growing preference for civil rather than religious weddings this accounts for the decline in numbers of church wedings I have been conducting in recent years.

Reasons given for the fall vary but it includes the lack of tax incentives for getting married as opposed to living together; or according to one commentator, a growing lack of ability to sustain close relationships.
