Marriage? It’s not worth the divorce


Susan Finnamore got divorced and then wrote a book about it. Has she got a point in the title?

When someone asks “How do I get a divorce?” they may well agree with her, certainly at that point. They worry about cost of divorce, their divorce rights and grounds for divorce and those are just the legal aspects of their concerns.

The legal implications of marriage are often forgotten about in the romantic rush of engagement and wedding planning—and so is a prenuptial agreement.

Many unmarried couples live together and their legal rights are decidedly different—at least until the Government changes the law as suggested they will. Many people living together seem to make living together agreements. Are they just expecting to part and preparing better than people marrying?
