Home / News and Insights / Press / Is it really too easy to get a divorce in England and Wales?

Mr Ayeh-Kumi has launched legal action in the High Court to overturn England’s ‘easy’ divorce laws, saying his ex-wife breached his human rights by securing a divorce on grounds that, for example, he worked too much and did not go on family holidays with her and the two children. He asserts that the use of the term ‘unreasonable behaviour’ as grounds for divorce is too vague, as it is not defined in law, thereby making separation too easy. Mr Ayeh-Kumi may not be alone in holding this view and it is noted that his endeavours are supported by ‘cloud funding’ and those being divorced against their will.

John Darnton, Consultant in our family and matrimonial team, discusses this in an article for Today’s Family Lawyer.
