Couples seeking divorces for falling out of love

According to a survey of Britain's leading family law firms, the main reason for divorce proceedings was given as couples falling out of love, Daily Mail reported.

Lawyers have also noticed a rise in the number of pre-nuptial agreements they draw up, as well as a number of couples delaying their divorces, as they wait for the economic climate to improve.

They hope for their assets, such as homes, to improve in value to improve financial settlements.

The survey also showed that husbands are hiding assets in nearly a third of divorce cases, thanks to new rules based on human rights laws.

The research found 94 percent of lawyers saying they believed there were hidden assets - including cash, property, savings and shares - in three out of ten of their cases.

In the vast number of divorce cases, the husband has the higher earnings and the greater incentive to conceal savings or property, it was found.
