Changing Attitudes Towards Marriage and the Family

Reasons for changing attitudes:-

  • The UK is now a multi-faith and multi-ethnic society
  • People are more tolerant of difference
  • Less focus on Christian teachings
  • The Church has less influence
  • Decline in traditional family values
  • Women are more equal to men in society
  • Fewer people are getting married and more are choosing to cohabit (live together without being married)
  • Fewer religious marriage ceremonies
  • Homosexuality is no longer an offence and is more acceptable - homosexual couples can now marry legally
