CBC News Why Do We Marry?

In an age when it's neither socially or legally necessary, why do Canadians choose to marry? This provocative documentary looks at a convention that is not only persistent but thriving. It begins with a young couple whose piercings and tattoos would lead you to believe they are not the marrying kind, but it's the moral thing to do, they say. There are couples who marry just to have the party, encouraged by a huge wedding industry that promotes the sensational wedding. And if it’s not the couple who wants the marriage, it may very well be their parents who insist on the nuptials.
