Marriage: Trends and reasons for the trends
Less people are marrying overall: decline in first marriages, 175,000 in 2012 – less than half of 1970.
There are more remarriages: 2012 -one third of marriages were remarriages – pattern of serial monogamy – (marriage, divorce, and re-marriage).
People are marrying later: due to increase in cohabitation & people focusing on careers first, especially women.
Less church weddings: due to secularisation and some religions not remarrying divorcees.
