Divorce rates are down, but what should you do if you want to separate?
Divorce rates have fallen to their lowest level for over 40 years. Figures from the Office for National Statistics show just over 130,000 marriages broke down in the UK in 2013. That's down almost 3% from the previous year. That's coincided with the recent rise in the number of couples choosing to tie the knot over the last few years, partially reversing a decades long trend of declining marriage and rising divorce. So, does living together before getting married mean a stronger union? And what should you do if you can no longer stay with your other half? To discuss this, Share Radio's Georgie Frost was joined by Collette Bailey, partner in the family team at Gardner Leader law firm.
