Earlier this month David Cameron unveiled plans to recognise marriage in the tax system. The plans are set to benefit married couples by £150 per year.
A new dating website http://www.MarryForMoney.co.uk aims pair up singles for marriage who would otherwise miss out on the planned tax breaks.
“of course I don’t expect anyone will actually get married just to save £150,” said website founder Adam Ulivi. “The idea is to highlight a morally unfair tax plan.”
He went on to say “I’m in a long term relationship and don’t believe marriage is necessary to show commitment. Of the last 4 weddings I’ve been to, only 1 of the couples are still together. To me, David Cameron’s plan incentivises people to rush into or stay in unhappy marriages. If people want to celebrate their commitment that’s fine, but it doesn’t mean they deserve a tax break more than anyone else.”
David Cameron has explained his thoughts on the issue, “I think it is essential to say loudly and proudly that commitment is a core value of a responsible society, and that's why we will recognise marriage.”
Nick Clegg recently described the plan as “patronising drivel that belongs in the Edwardian age".
Although MarryForMoney is tongue-in-cheek, it serves as a fully functioning subscription-free dating website with user profiles, search features and chat. If the service does lead to any marriages though, whether the happy couple get to cut down on their taxes depends on who wins the general election.
