Why is marriage suddenly back in fashion?

20 January 2010

Has cupid taken leave of his senses? 2010 is the year of the odd couple. And they’re not just flirting around. It seems every day another engagement is announced. The pastor’s daughter and the sexaholic. The 42-year-old divorcee and her teenage toy boy… And, in the last few days, two more celebs are rumoured to be tying the knot. First, Kate Moss, who’s on-again, off-again relationship with Jamie Hince is less ‘death’, more ‘til Doherty us do part’. Then, David Walliams has announced he’s to wed Vogue cover girl Lara Stone. So, to out list of mismatches we can also add the camp comedian and the supermodel.

We ask you, why is marriage suddenly back in fashion? We’ve got a few theories:

1) We were all quite happy being me-me-me when we were financially secure and could afford to enjoy the single life, but now we’re recession hit, we’re searching for security – someone to share the mortgage, stock the fridge and hold our hand through the job cuts.
2) Oh well, if it all goes wrong, quickie divorces are on tap these days. As long as you’ve got a pre-nup – par for the course in Hollywood – what’s the harm?
3) It’s all good publicity.
4) Love… Yes, it is possible they’re just head over heels and want to spend the rest of their lives together.

What do you think? Tell us your theories….
