The Prime Minister may face a rebellion from swathes of his own MPs during the House of Commons vote on Monday, and has been accused of rushing through the plans in lockdown, when many marriages are under increased stress.

It will also allow one partner to initiate divorce proceedings and begin a 20 week ‘reflection period’ without notifying their spouse, reported The Daily Telegraph.
