Durham Union Debate: This House Believes That Marriage is Outdated- 20/01/2012
Jo Edwards followed her debut at the Oxford Union last spring by participating in another debate at Durham Union, "This House Believes That Marriage is outdated".
Jo proposed the motion, with Edward Hauschild, a law undergraduate and champion debater, supporting her. They were opposed by Adele Parks, best-selling author, and the Reverend Deacon Peter Lavery, co-ordinator for marriage and family life at the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. As at Oxford, romance ruled the day and the House did not agree that marriage is outdated.
