The court has ruled that a wife who gave up her career as a solicitor to care for the children which allowed her husbands career to take precedence has encountered a “significant relationship generated disadvantage” this led Mr Justice Moor to find that the wife should receive £400,000 compensation as well as 50% of the matrimonial assets.
This could have implications for future cases where a spouse has given up a career to care for the family although Mr Justice Moor has said that this should not open the floodgates for such arguments and should only be considered in exceptional cases.
