Cut Gwyneth Some Slack: No Fault Divorce Is the Future

Cut Gwyneth Some Slack: No Fault Divorce Is the Future

Following the publicity which surrounded Gwyneth Paltrows self-described conscious uncoupling from husband and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, Catherine Thomas wrote for the Huffington Post about no-fault divorce.

Catherine lamented the press obsession with celebrity divorces, saying that it signals the development of more than an obsession with celebrity culture, an obsession with private details of someones life that are always the most painful. She remarked that Ms Paltrows reward for attempting to adopt a tone and ethos that to her seems appropriate is contempt and ridicule.

Concluding that the insatiable appetite for salacious details was an unfortunate ramification of the desire for transparency, she added The future is no fault divorce with mediation and arbitration used where appropriate in suitable cases. There is no space for continually attacking someone because they are rich or famous, yet just so happen to be going through a divorce.

Catherines comments were also featured in The Global Legal Post.
