The Daily Mail has reported findings from a new think tank that show that only 1 in 6 people now consider themselves to be part of a “traditional” family structure. They explain that people living in nuclear families with married parents and siblings are now in the minority.
Whilst these findings have come under heavy criticism from other analysts, statistics do indicate that more and more people are choosing not to marry. The reasons why individuals are less inclined to marry will vary but a fear of divorce is likely to be a common theme.
There is lots of misunderstanding about divorce law and in particular divorce settlements. Family Law Solicitors can offer advice regarding all types of relationships including: marriages, civil partnerships and cohabitation.
