The British home office have just released the figures for number of marriages performed last year.
And the marriage rate is the lowest since records began.
In absolute numbers England recorded the lowest number of marriages since 1895.
Perhaps the reason is this
The decrease in the number of marriages was attributed partly to a change in the law in February 2005, designed to crack down on "sham" marriages carried out for purposes such as securing a visa.
Or perhaps there is a much deeper underlying problem.
Before Christ was born Augustus Caesar recognized the key to a successful society was the family and children. Our elites today have totally lost sight of this or no longer care.
Which is why the inheritors of tomorrow may well come from the third world where they still do care.
