Marriages on the Rise

When growing up many girls picture their ideal wedding, from the long white dress and a horse drawn carriage, through to the bouquet of flowers they’ll have; and now official figures have revealed that the number of marriages taking place in England and Wales is increasing.

According to the latest figures, which were published by the Office for National Statistics, during 2012 in England and Wales there was a five percent increase in the number of marriages taking place, compared to the year before – taking the total number of marriages to over 262,000.

A breakdown of the figures reveals that almost all generations experienced a rise in marriages; with the 25 – 29 age group being the one which had the most marriages; whilst those aged 65 – 69 saw the largest increase in marriages.

The figures have also revealed that of those who got married during 2012, two thirds were divorced.
