Inspirational Breakfast with Esther Higham

You’ve heard all about having a “new you for the new year”. But what about a new relationship to replace an old one?

According a poll of 2,000 spouses by legal firm Irwin Mitchell, one in five married couples consider separating from their partners after staying together over the festive period.

Many couples wait until after Christmas and the New Year before initiating a separation, leading to a glut of inquiries in the first working fortnight of the year.

And the Office for National Statistics claims that 42 per cent of all marriages end in divorce.

Jenny Porter, Director of Client Services for Marriage Care, gives her advice on how to rebuild rather than make new relationships.
