Is divorce the only option?
Before you consult a solicitor about getting a divorce, you would be wise to consider whether there are any alternatives. Statistics show that many spouses who file for divorce live to regret it and many second marriages fail. Perhaps a period of separation would resolve some of your differences. Perhaps external factors concerning money (or lack of it!) are causing marital strife. Perhaps you could consider counselling with an agency such as RELATE (formerly marriage guidance). Some disputes can be solved with a mediator. Mediation is a settlement based on what is acceptable to both parties rather than based upon that to which the parties are legally entitled.
