I have just discovered that my husband, who is doing a locum

Customer Question

I have just discovered that my husband, who is doing a locum in Bermuda is living with a women 30 yrs his junior there. We have been married 38 yrs and he is 70. She is obviously only after money. I need to protect the money we have in the bank here.
I don't want to start divorce proceedings against him yet as that would just be playing into her hands for her to marry him and get her hands on our money.
I need advice on how to best proceed.

No he hasn't asked for a divorce and our accounts in the UK are in joint names but he has an account in Bermuda in his name only where the money from his locum work there goes.
