Judgment: The financial consequences of the breakdown of a marriage that had lasted for 22 years, with three children, all still in education. The couple had renovated a large country home at great expense shortly before the divorce. The applicant husband suggested for himself a housing fund of £3m and an income fund of £2.3m. The wife suggested figures of £1.8m and £400,000. Cohen J reminded himself of the factors to be taken into account, including that the applicant must not be treated less generously on account of his sex, especially when he would be playing an equal part in the children's care, and made a total award of £2.85 million. The house would be transferred to the wife.
