He added that one growing problem for those attempting to unravel a divorcing couple’s finances was the level of financial support previously provided by parents-in-law to help them get a foothold on the housing ladder.“Debts of all kinds are a regular feature of divorce and not just more of a concern as couples tighten their belts during a recession,” he added.“That is certainly true for arguments related to sums provided by family members, despite the fact that rising property prices in recent years have meant more individuals feeling that they have to call on parents for help.”“In some of those cases, though, what were assumed to be cash gifts for things such as house deposits or even support in starting a business are suddenly classified as ‘loans’ when marriages hit the rocks.” Even though the failure of any marriage is unfortunate, it is perhaps especially so to see couples divorcing after only a couple of years spent as man and wife with bills for their wedding worth many thousands of pounds still not settledMichael Chapman, JMW Solicitors Credit:Getty Dr Rowan WilliamsCredit:Jonathan Brady /PA Credit:Andrew Crowley The pressure on couples to stage increasingly expensive “fairytale” weddings is now so great that some are now still trying to pay off the bills when they get divorced, family lawyers claim.One law firm has reported that more than a quarter of divorce settlements it handles is now held up by complications over who should be responsible for paying off debts accrued during the course of the marriage – or even from its beginning.In most cases the disputes between separating husbands and wives centre on the unpaid instalment plans for expensive items such as sports cars, caravans or holiday cottages. More recently the former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Williams of Oystermouth also spoke out about the threat to family life from what he called the “marketisation of marriage”.He warned of long-term consequences from the notion of “the perfect relationship crystalised in the perfect wedding day – the immense economic, advertising investment in this massively fantastical experience which you go through on your wedding day, after which, of course, nothing is ever quite so good again.” Mr Chapman, a specialist family lawyer at JMW, said: “The issue of debt is, sadly, a recurrent part of discussions when it comes to dividing assets and providing the means for both spouses to move on after a divorce.“Although the topic is particularly acute for younger couples who might not yet have had the opportunity to build up property, pensions or cash reserves, it is not exclusive to that age group.“There is still a considerable number of middle-age couples choosing to go their separate ways with the question of who should honour hire purchase or loan agreements still unresolved.“Disputes about household furniture and electrical items, cars, caravans and property are far from uncommon.“It is not solely about whether couples might be considered reliant on loans or not.“We have dealt with many instances in which even relatively wealthy couples regard determining ownership of debt almost as a matter of principle. It follows a warning from the then Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith in 2013 that overpriced “glitzy, celebrity” weddings are killing marriage by putting many off tying the knot altogether and saddling others with crippling debts which put a strain on the relationship. “Even though the failure of any marriage is unfortunate, it is perhaps especially so to see couples divorcing after only a couple of years spent as man and wife with bills for their wedding worth many thousands of pounds still not settled.” But others involve expensive “start-up” costs for the marriage itself such as furniture and other household necessities.Michael Chapman of JMW Solicitors, which handles around 300 divorces a year, said that a small but significant number of such disputes that his firm sees even centre on who should clear loans used to pay for the couple’s honeymoon or the wedding ceremony itself.He added that such disagreements were frustrating attempts by couples “of all ages and circumstances” to start over once their marriages had collapsed.
