A High Court judge has hit out at what he is calling the "Hello magazine approach" to marriage.

Sir Paul Coleridge, who sits in the Family Division, says he feels compelled to speak out because of a dramatic increase in divorce and family breakdown.

He is taking the unusual step for a serving judge to launch the Marriage Foundation, to make the case that stable, long-term marriages are best for individuals, families and society.
