Divorce can be caused by a good memory

Divorce can be caused by a good memory according to Cheshire family law solicitors Stonehewer Moss. The family solicitor at the Northwich office has over 30 years of memories since graduating with a law degree in 1990 at Liverpool but 26 years of practice including divorce work has warned him of the risks the modern world creates for married couples of a trip down memory lane. Today we logged in to the Land Registry on line service and had to answer three questions related to personal experience for security purposes. The divorce solicitor here of aforesaid 30 years legal memory and writer of this blog had thought within the hour of answering a question about his favourite memory of the sad news of the death of Rex Makin, colossus of the Liverpool legal community and very much the man in 1990 when the writer obtained his Desmond. The writer had thought of Mr Makins office in Whitechapel. Later, thinking about the security question, he thought not, admittedly, of a lawyer being his favourite memory but of a brief moment at Whitechapel bus stop in the summer of 1990. Incredibly innocent and perhaps  sad, such things are a lifetimes memory made on. Is it an association of ideas that randomly throws out a thought  or a fixed belief that makes us what we are? No doubt a psychiatrist could tells us. Thirty years experience of medical experts suggests perhaps not. Divorce can be caused by a good memory turned into a reality by use of modern technology that upsets our current real life relationships.

The divorce rates are now low but through the writers career there has developed the modern digital world in which our random stream of consciousness is made by us into a sought of reality on line and then our very real personal relationships may have to come to terms with that trip down memory lane. It started with Friends Re-united, a now obsolete site that caused many divorces when memory of old flames or crushes caused collisions with real people decades down the line, with what consequences for the families of that old thought that in the past would have remained only in the head of the middle aged? Religion has certainly declined over that thirty years but what are the social norms now and does marriage and divorce that may follow fail to grasp the risks that digital access foreseeably present to human relationships? Perhaps it is time we took responsibility for our frailties, just as the marriage ceremony of old expressed mutual acceptance of responsibility for each other in sickness and in health etc. Do you take thee and the billions of neurons that might in the future connect together to fix on a google search that might lead to an ill advised meeting that will upset you and may cause a divorce until facebook do you part? A pre nup or living together agreement is sensible in a very complex environment. May your memories be happy and harmless.  Divorce can be caused by a good memory turned sad reality.
