I was experiencing technical problems again at the weekend and was getting rather agitated because I think I must becoming addicted to blogging.

On Friday Joe Vaitilingam wrote in The Times how the Law Commission in England & Wales would be better spending their time reforming the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 rather than looking at pre-nuptial agreements. He makes the point that only the well heeled will benefit from pre-nups whereas the benefit from reforming MCA 1973 would be far reaching. Maybe there is a cultural difference in that in Scotland only the assets accrued between the dates of marriage and separation are considered matrimonial but I have never quite understood the enthusiasm for pre-nuptial contracts when judges, lawyers and their clients seem to feel a comprehensive overhaul of the law is a more pressing need. Of course a comprehensive review requires resources.
