With changes in society leading to a fall in marriage and rise in divorce, is it possible that the institution has outlived its function?

It’s well known that the origins of marriage are in consolidating wealth, unifying allied families and fomenting a society where the family unit is self-sufficient, but as we have moved on, the concept of marriage has remained static. Marriage: Shattered Vows examines what marriage means to us today, visiting the lives of those devastated by their own perceived failures and religious figures who promote it. We investigate the marriage industry and the costs of divorce, against a backdrop of government incentives, look at the arrival of Gay marriage, the rise in sanctioned infidelity and alternative relationship structures.
