My partner and I have been together for almost 2 years and have a beautiful baby girl of 10 weeks, unfortunately his wife refuses to get a divorce and whilst they were married for 4 years and separated over 2 years ago she claims she has a right to maintenance despite them having no children and they did not own a property? What can we do? She has been very unpleasant with nasty messages for me and insists she will never divorce him to allow us to marry!
Your partner could try to divorce her on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour ... Or he could wait another three years and then divorce without her consent.
Five years passes quickly, honestly! I''ve been separated over three years and have a little boy with my new partner. My Ex is refusing to divorce too, even after three years, so I''m having to wait until Feb 2014 ... It''s not so long, my boy still won''t have started school by then (that''s how I''m measuring it!)
