Giles Fraser and Marriage: was he right?


On Wednesday I was drowsing in the bliss of the out-of-term lie in when I heard, through the fog, from the radio the words "Thought for the Day with the Revd. Dr. Giles Fraser". Now, what with me actually aspiring to be Giles Fraser in my next life, I sat up and listened. (Well, I didn't actually sit up so much as snuggle down, but at least I was wide awake.) Read or listen here It was a strong indictment of the narcissism of the modern wedding. There was a lot of discussion and debate on the airwaves subsequently and in today's Guardian I came across This.

Are they right?
