Let’s go for the least painful way possible

30 October 2015

No-fault divorce was the subject of a Ten Minute Rule Bill debated in the House of Commons.

We support this motion.

Divorce in England and Wales requires one person to accuse the other of adultery / unreasonable behaviour / desertion to have their divorce granted within two years of marriage breakdown.

Research has found that 27% of divorcing couples who assert blame in their divorce petition admit the allegation of fault isn’t true, but it’s the easiest option.

Relate contests that it’s important that couples are able to separate in the least painful way possible without having to make false allegations about one another.
