Britain Marriages Hit Record Low

Ad Feedback

The number of people tying the knot in Great Britain has hit an all-time low.

The London Evening Standard reported the number of marriages was at its lowest since records were first kept in 1862.

In 2006, less than 10 out of every 1,000 single adults in England and Wales got married.

Critics blame the Labour Party's benefits system which started slashing tax breaks for married couples back in the 80s.

It also rewards single parents for staying single.
