Jenni Murray presents a listener phone-in on marriage.

Why do so many of us still choose to get married, is marriage important to society and if it is, does it deserve financial support?

All this week Woman's Hour has been discussing marriage - from the history of marriage, to the role of church and state and whether there should be financial incentives to get married.

Woman's Hour wants to hear about your experiences - if you decided to marry why did you do it? And does being married, or not, make a difference to your relationship with your partner?
