Divorce Day

On returning to work, the media are commenting upon the fact that this is the time of year that more people start divorce proceedings than any other.

The first day back at work, 3rd January 2012 is often referred to as D-day or Divorce Day and it is unfortunate that people feel unable to continue in their current relationships and as such consider separation.

A High Court Judge – Sir Paul Coleridge is to launch a foundation to defend marriage and reduce the cost of family breakdown.  The foundation will include commission research into strengthening marriage, seminars and proposals for family-friendly policies.

I heard the phrase on the radio this week “– mend it – don’t end it”.  It is understood that there are currently 3.8 million children caught up in the family justice system which seems an alarming figure and extremely sad for all involved.

Unfortunately, I believe that many people feel unable to cope with the stress and strains of their relationship, particularly in difficult financial times such as the current recession.  I hope that people reach a measured decision about their future; which results in less hostility, in order to reduce any impact on children.
