Mind the Gap: marriage and social class in Northern Ireland

The Iona Institute has just launched a new report showing that a huge marriage gap exists in Northern Ireland (as in the South) between the most advantaged and disadvantaged groups in society. Those in the upper income groups are twice as likely to be married as those in the bottom income groups. This gap is much bigger than the gender pay gap which causes so much concern. The marriage gap must be highlighted and debate. Our report is a contribution to that.
