Alison Hawes, who is a family lawyer at Irwin Mitchell, said that its expected that homosexual relationships will follow the general trends of heterosexual marriage and divorce.

She added that it was a common generalization that there is a seven-year itch when relationships supposedly become more difficult and statistics show that the first 10 years are the most vulnerable in every marriage.

According to the Office for National Statistics, women were most likely to opt for splitting, with almost six out of 10 dissolutions involving lesbian couples and a total of 60,454 gay and lesbian couples have opted to dissolute their relationship.
