  • That is £15k a year more than my salary as a female solicitor and I work hard for a living. Sounds like a good settlment to me for doing nothing except living of your ex. Personally I get satisfaction from being independent, like a lot of women, so am sad when I see a clawing for cash from women post breakdown of a marriage. Less than half was not good enough ?

  • I read your first commentator's opinion and was shocked her vehement remarks. I thought it was an article about a barrister being sued for allegedly doing an unprofessional job, not about whether women should be able to claim finiancial support from their ex-husband! Did I miss the point?

  • I guess once the ink on the settlement dried up the former wife watched "Raw" on Youtube (the 1987 stand up show by Eddy Murphy) and realized she could have obtained "half"…. That should be compulsorily viewing for everyone thinking of getting married!

  • It's strange that your first commentator talks about her salary as a "female" solicitor. Is she indicating that women solicitors are paid differently from male ones? If she is complaining about what she earns "as a woman", she should refrain from complaining about what other women receive in the divorce courts.

  • She's changed her mind, she can't get more out of her ex, so she's having a go at the lawyer's insurers instead. What is it with divorce litigants - and I am sorry but it is usually women - who cannot grasp that consent is consent is consent and don't come back howling for more?
