On the anniversary of the Marriage Foundation's launch Paul Coleridge looks back over the solid achieve-
ments of the first year and says that "there is everything to play for. Please continue to stand with us."
The Marriage Foundation think-tank has produced a report revealing that second marriages are more stable than first marriages, challenging the widely held belief that couples who remarry are doomed to repeat the mistakes from their first marriage.
New report shatters the common assumption that the divorce rate for all couples is higher than it was in the 1960s. If a married couple survive the first ten years of marriage, their risk of divorce is the same as it has been in the previous four decades.
