The No Fault Divorce Bill introduced by Conservative MP Richard Bacon is to be debated in the House of Commons for the second time tomorrow.
At present, unless they have been separated for more than two years, divorcing couples must cite either adultery or unreasonable behaviour in their petitions. This can create unnecessary animosity between them. The vast majority of family lawyers feel that no fault divorce is long overdue, and are watching the bill's progress with interest.
