Overview

This is an insight into our twenty-first century relationships in the U.K. reflected by a 'family law' solicitor. After years in practice divorcing people, arguing about our possessions and our children, she asks us to ask difficult questions.

Who are we? How well do we know ourselves and our sexuality? What do we really want from our relationships?

The book is peppered with illustrations from her professional and personal life. It discusses how our modern life of internet, mobiles, contraceptives, travel and media freedom has changed the partnerships we make, our expectations of them and the transparency under which they are conducted. Without the past's religious and moral restrictions and with our massive strides towards an Egalitarian society, both genders are struggling to maintain the 'Fairy Tale' of a life-long union filled with love and children.

She examines why we take more sexual partners and increasingly 'cheat' and why total honesty may be the only route to true intimacy and preservation of the family unit.

She deals with many of the relevant legal issues and procedures and includes interesting government statistics.

Not a book for the morally conservative as the cover suggests it is brutally honest on occasion and challenging throughout. It does not seek to provide answers but to stir us into thought; to fire us into disagreement; to provoke us to grasp the inevitable nettles within our modern land-scaped relationships and find our own individual ways to make them long, happy and truly intimate.
