For some couples the added pressure that Brexit puts on their relationship, be it emotional or financial, may be enough for them to decide to separate. An entrepreneur is setting up a hotel where couples aim to resolve their divorce in a weekend.

I'm always open to new ways of reaching a financial settlement. We certainly offer our clients lots of options and flexibility. I can't help wonder whether this pressure cooker concept might force quick settlement but leave either person to regret their haste later. I suspect it would be worth them having done lots of groundwork first, so they feel comfortable having the necessary conversations, which doesn't seem the point.
