Penny Mansfield, Director of OnePlusOne comments on ONS marriage stats

28 June 2013

“It is encouraging to see an increase in marriage and civil partnerships statistics. To see relationships blossom and for people to  legally bind their union is always a positive outcome for a relationship, often enhancing how secure the couple feel. However, whilst encouraging, OnePlusOne seeks to raise awareness of the importance of strengthening relationships in all forms and promote the need for relationships as a whole to be recognised throughout our society. OnePlusOne recognises the benefits marriage can bring to a relationship, but evidence shows that it is the quality of couple relationships that can contribute to positive social and economic outcomes for families.”
