HuffPost Divorce: The Top 10 Stereotypical Marriage Wreckers
I was recently invited to contribute to HuffPost Divorce, where you can now find a slideshow featuring my Top 10 Stereotypical Marriage Wreckers. I decided to write a fairly light hearted piece. Regular readers know that much of what I write on the blog is about English law which can be tricky, or deals with quite sad situations. So this was my opportunity for once to write fairly tongue in cheek, but nevertheless based on my knowledge of the ten thousand or so clients I have represented in my career. Yes I really have and I think that number may be low.
The subject matter came to mind a week ago when I was doing a spinning class in the local gym -I couldn’t help noticing that there are a lot of ‘glammed up’ men and women who never end the class looking as bad as me! It set my imagination going, and gave me something to concentrate on through a long spinning session and this post is the result. So far over 700 US readers have left comments on HuffPost Divorce and it is now tagged as one of its Most Popular posts. It has also been reprinted in various languages across the world. I’m really thrilled that my thoughts have transferred with such overwhelming approval to an American and worldwide audience.I hope you enjoy it too. I do like being called “Attorney Stowe”!
HuffPost Divorce was inspired by HuffPost’s thrice-married editor-at-large Nora Ephron, best known as the screenwriter of romantic comedies including When Harry Met Sally… and Sleepless in Seattle. It was Nora who came up with the section’s tagline: “Marriage comes and goes but divorce is forever…” Since its launch, HuffPost Divorce has gained a community of loyal readers and, if you are currently going through separation or divorce, I recommend that you take a look.
