Divorces are increasingly being delayed because recession-hit couples are fighting over supermarket and airline loyalty points. Partner Ed Kitchen of family law firm Pannone said arguments about how to split loyalty points are often 'deal-breakers', causing friction between couples who have succeeded in reaching a settlement over their finances with relative ease.
"When you consider that it can cost several thousand pounds a year to pay for the family holidays and even discounted groceries that these schemes provide, it is perhaps no wonder that separating spouses are demanding either the points themselves or money in lieu of the points," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
