Imran Khan and his wife have announced today that they are to divorce after just ten months of marriage. Earlier this week, it was announced that Halle Berry and her husband Oliver Martinez are to divorce after two years of marriage.

These are just two in a long line of divorces this year by people in the public eye, a lot of whom have had short marriages.

It must be extremely difficult for your private life to be under public scrutiny, particularly where there are children involved so I hope these couples are able to deal with matters reasonably by agreement and avoid going to court.
