In a recent debate, Sir Paul Coleridge, a former High Court family Judge, has suggested some interesting (to say the least!) ideas to encourage married couples to stay together.
Married couples should be given “milestone” tax breaks to reward them for staying together, the former High Court family judge Sir Paul Coleridge has suggested. Sir Paul, founder of the Marriage Foundation think-tank, said the idea would be an acknowledgement that stable families ultimately save the taxpayer money. He also said that couples who choose to cohabit rather than getting married should not have children. Sir Paul stepped down from the judiciary to concentrate on the think-tank and amid controversy over his public stance in favour of marriage. His latest comments came during a debate organised jointly by his foundation and the Sunday Times.
