Royal wedding triggers divorce research

Searches for information relating to online divorce increased as the nation became gripped by the royal wedding, new findings reveal.

Research from online marketing firm I-COM shows that related internet searches accounted for around 20 per cent of traffic from April 30th until the end of the following week.

"Unfortunately we guess that this fairytale wedding, instead of making couples feel better about their relationships, actually made them feel worse, and perhaps highlighted the lack of romance in their marriage," commented the company's operations director Mike Blackburn.

He suggested that in light of this, many people will no doubt have felt that they needed to take action.

In recent weeks, an iPhone app was developed to help people determine whether or not they should take divorce proceedings against their partner, much to the dismay of experts in family law.

Anastasia de Waal, deputy director and director of family and education at Civitas, said it was unlikely to be used by anyone seriously considering separation.
