Overhaul to divorce law to end 'blame game' between partners

For the first time in half a century divorce laws in England and Wales are getting an overhaul.

The Government plans to end the 'blame game' between partners by dropping a legal requirement to find a guilty party.

It's hoped the shake-up will make the process less upsetting for families - especially children who might get caught up in unpleasantness during their parents' divorce.

The plans also include measures to stop a husband or wife being able to contest a break-up.
