Remove need for reading of Banns in church (the Marriage Act)

Comment 17th August 2010

Remove the requirement for Banns to be read out for 3 consecutive Sundays when getting married in a church. Replace it with a notice displayed in the church (similar to required if getting married in a registry office).

Why does this matter?

It is an outdated idea of announcing marriage through the reading of Banns. It is an additional hassle to arrange this when organising a wedding and it is unnecessary in the modern age. Alternative means of announcing intention of getting married are available and should be used.
