Cultural attitudes to marriage vary if families are from overseas, ONS says
65% of families included married couple in 2011, down from 70% in 2001
85% of Indian families were married, compared to 35% of Somalis

Married couples are in decline, fuelled by changes in social attitudes and the arrival of families from abroad.
The proportion of families with a couple who have tied the knot fell from 70 per cent in 2001 to 65 per cent in 2011, the Office for National Statistics said.

However, there are wide variations between the nationalities of families, with 85 per cent of Indian couples getting married compared to just 35 per cent of those from Somalia.




While almost two thirds (65 per cent) were married, the proportion with cohabiting couples and lone parent families rose in the decade from 2011.

Some 85 per cent of families were headed by someone born in the UK.

But a breakdown based on the nationality of the ‘family reference person’ shows how rates of marriage, cohabiting and living alone vary depending on where in the world comes from.

The ONS said that just over a third of foreign families were born in the Middle East and Asia (36 per cent), with the two largest countries of birth (India and Pakistan) accounting for more than half (52 per cent) from this region.
