Прочитайте отрывок из газетной статьи и мнение читателя. Поставьте абзацы в правильном порядке.

Up to the early twentieth century, marriage was considered a necessity. People chose partners who provided them with economic support and stability. Since then attitudes have changed and fewer people are tying the knots. Marriage is no longer necessity in modern society. Do you agree with this view of marriage? What are the arguments for and against marriage? PBS Studentmagazine invites readers to write in with their opinions.

A.Secondly, it has been suggested that marriage provides more

stability for children. Certain surveys of children in single-parent families claim they are more likely to commit a serious crime than children from two-parent, married households. But in spite of this, having married parents isn’t necessarily the best thing. It’s obvious that a stable single-parent environment is a lot healthier for children than an unhappy marriage.

B.First of all, it could be argued that marriage brings emotional and

financial security to a relationship. This is partly true as married people are still legally bound to support their spouses. On the other hand, getting married and divorced is becoming increasingly easy. As a result, fewer people are prepared to work at their relationship, married vows are broken, and many couples are left emotionally scarred.

C Finally, some people claim that marriage is becoming more flexible, with personalized vows and contracts enabling couples to define their relationship themselves. Nevertheless, precisely because the ceremony is flexible and easy to adapt, many people are abusing it. In America there have been televised game shows, where people can win and marry spouses, and in Australia one man actually married his television set.

D.To conclude, it’s clear that marriage is no longer necessary

to a successful, modern relationship. Nowadays a growing number of people simply prefer to live together. This continuing decline in marriages means there is greater freedom for individuals to choose their own partners and decide how they wish to live.

E.Marriage used to be considered a necessity for anyone

wanting to live together and start a family. But over the past two decades fewer and fewer couples have felt the need to tie the knot. What then are the advantages and disadvantages of marriage?

Teaching Good Manners

Today in Britain there is disagreement over how children should be taught to be … . Should parents force their children … “please” and “thank you”, for instance? Or are there … methods they could use?

Most parents still believe that teaching good … to their children is essential. However, it does seem ironic that the methods still often include bullying, … and threats.

On the other … , there are some ... which have a completely different attitude. Their philosophy is … on the idea that a small child will copy adults. … should set a good example. In addition, adults should be more … . Children shouldn’t be expected, for instance, to sit perfectly still while they are … for food in a café.

The good manners of Britain today date back to the last century when children were considered to be ... who needed to be trained before they could be accepted into adult society. Yet in countries … as Brazil, children can be seen everywhere with adults and their behaviour is nothing to be … of. So, perhaps if children in Britain were allowed to be seen more in … , they would be able to behave much better.
