New TV marriage show "sad reflection" on society, says Christian Institute
A new TV show in which six strangers get married has been criticised by the Christian Institute.
Married at First Sight on Channel 4 will show couples meeting for the first time at the altar after being put together by a panel of experts.
People from the fields of psychology, psychotherapy, social & evolutionary anthropology and theology will pair them in the hope of creating the 'perfect match'.
They will then spend the next six weeks being followed by a camera crew as they decide whether to stay together - if they don't want to they'll be offered a quick divorce.
Channel 4 says the show, which copies a format from Denmark, will answer two questions: "Can science produce a successful relationship and can the act of marriage itself help create a psychological bond that leads to true and enduring love?"
Simon Calvert from the Christian Institute told Premier why he thinks the whole idea is in bad taste.
