According to new research a quarter of divorcees in the UK have considered reconciliation with their ex. 12 per cent actually got back together. Of these, 73% cited managing to forgive an infidelity as the main reason, while 40% simply admitted still loving their ex.

It would have been interesting to ask the couples how many of them prepared a pre-marital agreement so that if they divorced again they wouldn't have to argue about the financial issues all over again. The pre-marital agreement would set it all out for them.
