A British woman has attempted to sue her former lawyers for professional negligence after they allegedly failed to properly explain to her that getting a divorce would end her marriage.
She claimed that, alongside a number of other allegations, they failed to advise that finalising divorce proceedings would officially end her marriage.
Roman Catholic Jane Mulcahy argued that the lawyers should have clearly explained that a divorce would terminate her marriage.

She claimed lawyers failed to take into account her faith and should have recommended judicial separation - a step away from full divorce - as an alternative course of action, the Independent reported
Her case was rejected by the court.
The curious case follows another bizarre divorce proceeding - a woman who is splitting from her husband over peas.
Just one week after getting married, a woman in Kuwait has filed for divorce after discovering her husband prefers to use bread, rather than a fork, to eat peas.
Traumatised by the 'shocking sight', she said she could no longer live with him, owing to his lack of etiquette.
The case of the 'shocking' peas, reported in the daily Al Qabas today, is not the only bizarre reason for wanting a divorce in Kuwait.
One woman wanted a divorce because her husband insisted on squeezing the toothpaste tube in the middle and not the end. 'We are always arguing... He is so obstinate,' she said.
Another woman divorced her husband on their wedding day because the groom had not made the costly arrangements that she had asked for.
