What a load of rubbish. How can Katie Price's string of marriages 'demean' anyone else's? If you eat a plate of cold s--t for dinner, have you 'demeaned' dinner for anyone other than yourself? This idea that marriage is a 'sacred institution' is absolutely ridiculous. Divorce is rampant, people can marry for virtually any reason they choose (unless they're gay - don't go getting any of your gay on our precious institution!) wedding vows are meaningless because they can be reneged on with relative ease. Beyond the societal/economic benefits of being recognised as a married couple, the whole thing is basically meaningless anyway. Standing in a church and reciting some bronze age nonsense doesn't imbue your relationship with some kind of magical power or the blessing of some terminally misguided deity who has a personal stake in your love life. It's 2013, can we all please grow up?
And the idea that what some perma-tanned balloon-titted oompa-loompa drag queen hosebag skidmark on the gusset of showbusiness should have any impact on how we regard OUR relationships and society is absolutely insane.
They're simply saying it makes get married look like it has no value, but to many people it really does. They have a point.
