Christian Churches in Scotland have issued a statement condemning domestic violence of any kind. The statement has been endorsed by the Catholic Church as well as the Church of Scotland, Salvation Army, Methodist and Episcopalian Churches. “Abuse in the home is a violation of God’s wish for us and creates substantial damage in the family, in the community and in society as a whole,” the statement read. Women, in particular, need to know that where there was no safety in a marriage, there was no sanctity and that the marriage vows had been broken by the abuser. It added that at the centre of any intervention work, the safety of those being abused was paramount.

But it also claims that the good work has stalled and there is little prospect of the pledge being met unless incoming Prime Minister Gordon Brown commits an additional lump sum to the £1 billion already earmarked for tax credits in the 2007 budget.

The number of marriages in England and Wales has hit a record low, an Office of National Statistics survey reveals. The rate of marriages in 2005 fell to 244,710, the lowest since 1896, The Guardian reports. The number of couples tying the knot two years ago plunged 10 per cent on the previous year. Observers said various factors, including legal moves to cut ‘sham marriages’ and increases in weddings overseas helped to explain the decline. But The Guardian said growing acceptance of cohabitation and government plans to give cohabiting couples similar rights to married partners were to blame. A Church of England spokesman expressed concern although the brunt of the fall has been felt by civil marriage ceremonies.
