When money flies out of the window, love walks out of the door. In good times, money papers over the cracks in a relationship; in bad times, fault-lines become divorce suits' The recession is putting many partnerships under strain. A top London law firm reports a record number of people making appointments to see family lawyers. Relate has also experienced an increase in the number of people contacting them for relationship counselling, while the online advice centre, has reported that two million married couples in the UK are experiencing marital problems and that 1.3 million people are actively considering leaving their marriage. Even in good times, almost 50% of marriages end in divorce in England and Wales. It seems, therefore, that many people need advice when faced with relationship breakdown. This book provides a practical guide to the process couples must undergo in order to legally end their marriage, and - while it is not a counselling manual - aims to help them realise that they are not the only people to have found themselves facing the complexities of ending a relationship. Topics covered include: Is this really happening to me? - what has gone wrong? Children; Finances; The divorce process; Separation; Annulment; Ending civil partnerships; Life after divorce.
