One thought on “How to advise a divorcee”

  • Marian Bangham says:

    What is the legal position of the spouse who has been the main “carer” of the couple’s children, enabling the other spouse to pursue a lucrative career, benefitting the whole family throughout the marriage, but not after the break up?
    Obviously the spouse who had main responsibilities for their children would not have been able to pursue a career ….that WAS their career …. particularly if the career spouse was often away from home or working late – particularly if, when the split occurred, it transpired that the late nights and nights away were often for pleasure rather than business!!!!
    How can the discarded spouse be expected to “take up a career” at 50, to continue living as before, when there has been no career to resume?
