كيف تكون العلاقات الناجحة؟

A family

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English.

Is there a set formula for successful relationships?

That is a question many have been asking after hearing the Conservative Party promise to introduce tax breaks for married couples if they win the next general elections.

Tax breaks are a way of reducing the amount of taxes that people pay and the Conservatives are doing this to support married couples.

This is seen by many as moralising and people who have children and are in happy relationships but are not married believe that the Conservatives are judging them and refusing them help based on the decision that they have made.

Phillippa Stroud, the director of the Centre for Social Justice believes that strong relationships happen through marriage, and that the problems in British society can be solved by strengthening married couples' relationships.

A study recently carried out by her centre says that problems of addiction, unhappy teenagers and teenage pregnancies could have been solved if parents were married and in happy relationships.

But Dr Katherine Rake, from the Family and Parenting Institute in Manchester believes that there is a lot of diversity within relationships and that governments and politicians should not juge people on their decision.

She says that marriage is just a piece of paper and different relationships should be judged on how loving and supportive they are of the people in them.

This topic will always remain controversial, especially as over 40% of children born in the UK are born to unmarried couples.

In my opinion the relationship that depend on marriage will be firm strong happy more than unmarriage realationship because it will guarantee the love,safety and legal life for children.

So if the government advances a set of facilities for people to get married, it will be a very effective way for creating avery advanced society and away from proplems.

I absolutely agree with the opinion that marriage is totally important for a permanent and successful couple relationship.
The government should play its vital role to help those who want to get married but they can't.
