Separation and Divorce often leads to uncertainty, arguments, disagreement and some very difficult discussions between the parties.
Even through the conciliatory act of mediation, separating couples find themselves talking about how the break will affect them in the short and long term and that fine detail can seem like a vast ocean to cross especially as it comes under the header of “Negotiation”.
The PM’s long awaited speech set out the objectives for the UK’s divorce from the EU. Like many couples who begin by believing that holding on to some aspects of the assets may be beneficial, as time moves it becomes more apparent a Clean Break is Desirable and the time has come just to get on with.
The New Global UK’s ambition has been set. It intends to leave the EU single market, Gain Control Over Immigration, Be in Control of its Own Laws and seek a new Custom Arrangement. Although these are big factors, couples make a similar list at a domestic level: house, bank accounts, cat, kids, shed, holiday home?
You could be forgiven for thinking of Bridget Jones throughout Mrs Mays speech, the part where empowered music plays and Bridget takes back control of her life. Mrs May was clear to Europe and her opposition, its time to do what’s right for the nation. Like parents on separation – its time to act in the children’s best interests.
The PM’s pledge is ambitious and only time will tell if it is achievable. However Sometimes in separation it is difficult to appreciate there is life around the corner. What you must do is rely heavily on the support you must stay strong professional and other wise.
