Some residents of Stratford marry. Despite the great racial and cultural diversity of Stratford many local families don’t mix and remain mono-cultural for the rest of their life. When moving people around Stratford we noticed that the local Indian families hardly ever mix with people of non-Indian ethnic origin. There are however mixed White, Black, Oriental and Latin families in Stratford. Number of those who decide to marry in Stratford simply attend the local registrar office to sign the papers. They don’t celebrate this special occasion at all ( like there was nothing to celebrate about).
Some people don’t celebrate their weddings due to the lack of funds or because they don’t plan to be together for too long, usually for more than five years. There is a pattern here in Stratford for couples planning to get marry. If they are of mixed nationalities, at least one of them is an EU national. The non-EU nationals are very unlikely to marry another non-EU national in Stratford. Here in Stratford the Europeans are most loved ones. We estimate that the length of time mixed nationalities of Statford stay together as married is closely related to the UK government policy on British Citizenship. The government could shorten or prolong relationships in Stratford just by shortening or prolonging the time required for people to live legally in the UK before they become eligible for the British citizenship.
