High Court judge Sir Paul Coleridge spoke to the press ahead of establishing his Marriage Foundation to champion matrimony as “gold standard for relationships”. The foundation seeks to promote marriage and to encourage families to stay together, attacking what Sir Paul sees as “unrealistic expectations” about marriage put forth in the media.
Ayesha Vardag responded to his comments pragmatically. She told the BBC “Sometimes the well-being of the individuals and their children is better served by parting than by remaining together in what becomes a damaging and destructive trap. When that is so, lawyers and the couple should put their efforts into achieving fair, amicable and speedy settlement and a good relationship between each other and the children going forward."
