EP or G v GG

Husband and wife – Divorce – Financial provision. Court of Session: In divorce proceedings in which the wife sought a capital sum of £800,000, periodical allowance of £2,750 per month for an extended period, and an order for sale of the former matrimonial home on divorce, the court rejected the wife's motion for sale of the matrimonial home and ordered the transfer of her one-half share to the husband; held that the husband had established that there were special circumstances justifying a departure from the presumption of equal sharing of matrimonial property, but the wife had not; found that the capital sum payable to her was £189,298.25; and ordered periodical allowance for two years (£2,000 per month for one year and £1,500 per month for a further year) but not for the very extended period the wife sought.
