A woman who says she forsook her prospects of becoming a law firm partner to start a family with her solicitor-husband has been awarded £400,000 by a family court in a landmark divorce case. 

Mr Justice Moor, delivering judgment in private said he found sufficient 'relationship-generated disadvantage' to justify awarding the wife compensation.
