UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Yes I was married in the UK
How long were you together before youmarried? What is it that is unfair? Why did he leave? Do you have children? Doyou mean whether you have to agree to the divorce? Is the marital home in jointnames or just not your name? Why would you not want to agree to it? What areyou looking to achieve?
We were together for 7 years before we married. Living together for four years before marriage. We have no children. Officially it is a very clean divorce - he says he doesn't want anything of mine i.e. pensions etc.
The reason I don't want to divorce yet is that I feel pressured into doing it. Emotionally I do not feel at all ready.
Marital home is in my name only.
My main point is that I simply want more time to accept. I guess this is not possible.

Although this is in danger ofbecoming a counselling matter rather than a legal matter have you actuallytried discussing this with your husband because your emotional welfare isunlikely to make much difference with regard to the actual divorce.
You cannot delay it simplybecause you want more time to think about it.

Thank you for your responses. Yes, I have asked him to hold on until I am more comfortable. But thank you - you have answered my question - the answer is no and I will accept that.
