Turning Pippie into Popeye, isn't the only thing that's changed in the UK... over the last two or three decades.

-- Second marriages made up two-fifths of all marriages in 2005.

-- In the same year, the average age at first marriage in England and Wales was 32 for men and 29 for women - up from 25 and 23 respectively in 1971.
