British Divorce Courts Require Allegation of Fault; This is the Result

Apparently, England requires parties to allege a fault before a family law court will grant a divorce.  Over at my general Florida family law news blog, ABC Family Law Blog, I described some of the allegations found in the public records:

  • A husband insisted that his wife dress in a Klingon costume and speak to him in Klingon;
  • A wife maliciously and repeatedly served her husband the food he least liked: tuna casserole;
  • A wife spitefully tampered with her husband’s television antenna and, even worse, threw away his cold cuts;
  • A husband usurped control of the parties’ washing machine and dismissed her revulsion of cold cuts;
  • A husband failed to speak with his wife for 15 years and, instead, only communicated with her via Post-It note;
