Imagine it, you're invited to a wedding and you then find out that it's a wedding where women are in one room and men are in the other. What do you do? Go along with it and bid farewell to your partner for the duration, or leave? Labour MP Jim Fitzpatrick decided to leave after he was told while attending a muslim wedding in the East End of London that he would be split up from his wife.
He explains what happened an an interview with the Today Programme HERE.
