Shelagh Fogarty asks- How important are wedding vows?

It's being reported that Kate Middleton will follow in Princess Diana's footsteps, by ditching the word "obey" from her wedding vows. The Daily Mirror says she'll promise to 'love, comfort, honour and keep' when she marries Prince William.

Our guests include horse racing pundit John McCririck, a big advocate of keeping "obey" in the vows; Joanna Moorhead, a journalist who writes mostly on family life and parenting; relationships expert Andy Jones and author and feminist Katy Lette.
