Focus on love and marriage

We’re making a BBC series on the story of love and marriage in Britain from the 1930s up to the present day, based on the personal memories of those who have the strongest tales to tell.

Were you married during or before the Second World War and still have powerful memories of love and marriage? If your partner is still alive we could be especially interested as you may be one of the longest-married couples in Britain.

Do you have an especially interesting or dramatic love and marriage story? Did you marry in difficult circumstances or in the face of adversity? Or perhaps an act of fate brought you and your loved one together?

Did you face disapproval and rejection – especially from your parents – for following the love you wanted?

Was married life what you expected it to be? What were the highs and lows? How did you deal with the many challenges that face long-term partners?

Perhaps you were unhappy in your marriage but splitting up wasn’t an option? Did you stay together mostly for the sake of the children?

If you have married several times, how has this affected each new relationship? Did you find the love you were searching for in the end?

Whatever your love story, whatever your age, if you have a fascinating tale you want to tell we’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch with me.
