We have been asked by ITV's Tonight programme to help with an episode they are planning about divorce that is due to be aired early in the New Year.
The programme is in the research stages at the moment.
They are keen to talk to people who have been or are going through the divorce process. Their particular focus is on "no fault" divorce but they are also looking at a range of other issues including what it is like to be a Litigant in Person in the Family Courts, how divorce is affecting an increasing number of older couples who have been married for decades and how the current divorce laws that require you to "blame" the other party if you want to divorce quickly may be having an impact on how things progress.
If you have any queries or concerns or have thoughts you want the programme to consider but don't want to contact the researcher directly, please post on this thread or contact me, Hadenoughnow, via PM.
Sounds really interesting and no fault divorce seems to be at the forefront since the Tini Owens case.
There was a long list of genuine 'faults' in my divorce petition, so I'm probably not the best candidate for this. But I do think the link between blame and human nature just make the divorce process so much more difficult than it need be.
@Polar - Nobody on this site should be watching Eastenders unless they particularly enjoy being miserable and enjoy watching people being miserable. Oh and no one in Eastenders seems to use Bury St Edmunds divorce centre - their divorce papers seem to come back so quickly. Also how do people who can't afford washing machines afford to have solicitors for divorce? :blink:lol!
Nope you have it all wrong. Its real life. They all drink in the same pub, all shop at the same market stalls, all eat in the same cafe and everyone seems to swop beds when the school bell rings. Only thing thats not real is the fact that Ive never seen someone go to the toilet !!!
Trouble is this is a type of media propaganda on how we should live.
One thing thats completely wrong is people seem to talk to each other. I thought everyone txted these days even if the other person is sitting beside you !!
