Supreme Court divorce approval sought by 'unhappy wife'

May 17th 2018

A woman in a "loveless and unhappy" marriage wants Supreme Court approval to divorce her husband of four decades.

Tini Owens, 68, from Broadway, Worcestershire, wants a court's refusal to grant her a divorce overruled.

She says her marriage to Hugh Owens, 80, has broken down, but he claims they still have a "few years" to enjoy.

Lawyers say she should not have to prove "unreasonable" behaviour by Mr Owens, but she should not "reasonably be expected" to stay with him.

A ruling by the five justices is expected later this year and could have implications for unhappily married people seeking divorce.
