This publication has been discontinued as a result of the review of marriage, divorce and adoption statistics. The outcome of the review includes a lookup table to show how the FM2 tables relate to the new marriage, divorce and adoption tables. This publication has been replaced with Marriages in England and Wales (Provisional), Divorces in England and Wales and Adoptions in England and Wales. The last volume to be published was Marriage, Divorce and Adoption Statistics 2007 (Series FM2 No. 35).
