Discuss how far sociologists would agree that marriage is still important in Britain today
Despite the changing patterns of family life facilitated by expenses (costs of the wedding), high life expectancy, and secularization, sociologists have anonymously agreed that marriage is still important in contemporary Britain. Traditions transferred through generations and beliefs influenced by schooling, friends, and media play a critical role in facilitating family practices in Britain. In addition, sociologists would agree that there are various pragmatic reasons for marriage, such as financial co-dependence, attaining the relationship's legal status, and perpetuating a clear line of ancestry. Marriages are therefore bound to provide legal security, reproduction, and financial security.
