As specialist divorce solicitors, it is rare that we at MG Legal get to write about marriage, but the Law Commission is to conduct a two- year review of marriage ceremonies in England and Wales view a view to cutting red tape. This follows a 2015 review which much to everyone’s surprise (**sarcasm intended**) found the laws surrounding marriage to be outdated and too restrictive. We were particularly surprised to hear this given that the laws surrounding marriage only date back to 1836. So, Chancellor Phillip Hammond announced in his 2018 budget that the Law Commission should draw up proposals for change following the review. 
 
The suggestion is that the project will look at the current laws as to how and where marriages can take place. There have been suggestions that military bases should allowed to be used for marriages for military personnel along with proposals that couples are allowed to marry in their own homes or at sea. The Law Commission's aim is to look at creating a simpler, fairer system that provides more choices and an alternative to the cost of an approved venue or registry office. The Government in the meantime is going to separately look to introduce new legislation which will allow civil weddings and civil partnerships to be held outside. Naturally; the Ministry of Justice said any new venues “would have to meet the existing test of solemnity and dignity”. 
Social Media has become an important part of most people’s daily lives. Research shows the average person spends at least 24 hours a week on social media. 
 
For many Social Media is an online diary; a way to keep your friends and family updated on your day-to-day life. However, at MG Legal, Local Lancaster Solicitors, it is not uncommon for our Family Department to receive a call from a client stating that their ex-partner has posted nasty comments or degrading photographs about them all over their social media accounts.

Sometimes, through no fault of your own, relationships just don’t work out. No matter how hard you work to try to fix it, sometimes it’s just not fixable. Maybe you’ve grown apart; maybe you realised that although you love your significant other, you no longer love them in the way you’re supposed to- it’s a cliché, but maybe you really are better off as friends. After all, not all love affairs have a happy ending.

Let’s say for arguments sake you’ve spent 7 years with your other half, that’s countless nights of listening to them snore and God knows what else (get the window open), or fighting over the duvet. You’ve argued about which Netflix series to watch, in fact I can whole heartily guarantee that one of you has committed the ultimate betrayal and watched the next episode behind your partner’s back (you Villain!!).
