Next week, 28 November – 2 December 2016 is ‘Good Divorce Week’, a national awareness campaign spearheaded by Resolution. But when can a divorce ever be described as ‘good’?
The main thrust behind the week’s events is the Resolution campaign for ‘no fault divorce’. At present, unless couples have been living apart for 2 years, one of the them needs to apportion some form of blame (adultery, unreasonable behaviour…) in order to proceed. With this blame often comes conflict and this makes reaching mutually acceptable agreement much more difficult.
