Divorce and breakup

8th January 2018

Just after the Christmas holidays each year we usually see a rise in couples feeling dissatisfied about their relationships and making the decision to divorce.

Some married couples make enquiries about divorce, and some couples who live together but have shared financial assets seek advice.

Recently, Slater & Gordon surveyed just over 2,000 people and they found that money worries are the main reason for break-ups driving one in ten married couples to split.

Over a third of the respondents (37%) said financial pressures are the biggest challenge their marriage faces, while just over a fifth (22%) say most of the arguments they have with their partner are about money.

The BBC looked at the financial issues in more depth http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42598969
