Experts list a few significant factors that lead couples to cite 'irreconcilable differences'


A quick and painless split!

A package tour company has offered unhappy couples the chance to divorce in just ten minutes during their Caribbean break.

A new service will fly one, or both, partners out to the Dominican Republic, where a judge can complete the process in a ten-minute hearing. They can then jet back to the UK or enjoy some of the island’s stunning beaches as single men and women.

The 4,500 pounds service, which includes air fares, hotel and paperwork, greatly accelerates a divorce process, which can take months, or even years, in Britain. Clients can jet in one day, see the judge the following morning then fly home that afternoon.

Similarly a Dutch ‘Divorce Hotel’ offers cheap divorce in just 2 days

It helps husbands and wives to arrange all the necessary legal documentation to end their marriage over the course of just two days.

They meet a mediator and series of lawyers behind closed doors who will split assets, agree alimony payments and arrange visitation rights - all for a fixed fee, according to news reports.

However, independent legal experts warned that they might not bear up to scrutiny if any aspect of the split was later contested.

Critics have complained that such quickie divorces are undermining the institution of marriage.

Will you marry me again?
Divorced men are twice more willing to re-marry and get back on their feet compared to women, a new study has revealed.

The new study has revealed that 47 per cent of men who had been through a divorce are eager to wed again.

However, on the second hand, only 20 per cent of female divorcees say they want to tie the knot a second time.

An astonishing 42 per cent of divorced men who are looking to date again also said they would be prepared to pay for a professional pick up artist to chaperone them on a date.

They expected that this expertise might help better their chat-up technique.

More divorced men also confessed about putting their profile on a dating website.

The study also divulged that thirty-one per cent said that they had tried online dating since their divorce, compared to just 19 per cent of divorced women.

“Dating is a complicated game for men and more so for those that are starting all over again, having been off the dating scene for a number of years,” Mini Lane, a professional dating expert, said.

She said that men consult gurus to help them learn how to dress and flatter their physique, as well as to develop their body language.
