“The E L James novel, 50 Shades of Grey has put the spark back into many relationships. I have also read in many papers that it is responsible for a baby boom.

Whilst that maybe true in some circumstances, the opposite is certainly true in others. 50 Shades of Grey in my view will also be responsible for a divorce culture.

There has been no greater evidence in support of that thought process than the client that I spoke to at some length last week. He had discovered his wife had been having an affair when he found material on her e mail in which she was quoting encounters detailed in the 50 shades book to her new, younger lover.

Whilst I am not yet at the stage of suggesting that Christian Grey will be named as a co respondent in a divorce petition, his name is constantly being named in dispatches.”  Paul Ireland, Solicitor, Head of Family Department
