Women concerned about finances after split
A new poll has found that 60 per cent of women aged 35 to 44 years, claim they would feel financially insecure if their relationship were to collapse.
The survey by credit report provider Callcreditcheck.com found that overall more than half of women (55 per cent) say that a separation from their partner would leave them feeling "financially vulnerable".
Owen Roberts, head of the website, says that arguments over money can cause "real problems" and can lead to the breakdown of a partnership.
He adds that this year is set to be a "very difficult year for many couples, especially those faced with the threat of redundancy, along with rising bills and remortgage worries".
Couples in the UK who decided to get divorced as a result of financial concerns may find that they can save time and money by using DIY divorce kits
such as those available from Lawpack.
