UK Women Putting Off Divorce For Pensions

Tim Randles submitted this link to a This Is Money story on the new divorce law in Britain that will give women half of their husband's pension money in a divorce settlement by default. Although the law is technically gender-neutral, (the "breadwinner" of the family is the one whose pension is cut) it's obviously going to adversely affect men in the majority of divorces. But don't worry, there's good news too: "Some solicitors say the new law may also be beneficial to men because they could avoid maintenance payments by paying off their wife with a slice of their pension." At least these lawmakers have our convenience in mind. (!)
