not really, I did try to retrieve a car key from the ignition of a car registered in my name, and she resisted and we both sustained cuts to our hands from the key ring, which she considers I was not justified in doing so. But had she written the car off she no doubt would have left me to sort out the excess on insurance etc., so I feel I was justified in trying to stop her driving it.
Sorry I only partially answered your question. On the question of divorce I have just retired and worried more about the financial implications, and the prospects of losing out on my pensions. One earned before marriage and one earned over a period of seven years some twenty years ago. She had the opportunity of having a company pension but declined, which over a twenty year period would have been worth than mine. She is 52 and engaged to marry, having left the day after I found out she had been meeting him.We had debts which I have cleared out of my pensions.So I would rather wait the five years before a divorce.
With only limited funds available, to see me through the rest of my life I cannot afford anything really.
I would not be better off, but at least I have some money at present not to have to worry if I go a little over budget, or to cope with anything unexpected. So at least I would have a few years without worry, which I have endured for a number of years, and need a break from. May I also ask would my wife be allowed to persue a claim if it is likely to cost more than that which may be awarded to her.
just a draft petition which was planned to be sent after 7 days.
Would it be simpler to agree that the marriage has broken down, (separation is in acess of two years) and that she should pay costs.
Yes, she moved in with her now fiancee, the day after she left on November 26th 2011.
