Sex every day for 25 years with a lying husband. That was the crux of Valemus Law’s Mark Goldstein’s eye-opening case that made it into Chapter 4 in the newly released definitive guide for women who have suffered a relationship breakdown, “The D-Word: When He's Got to Go, He's Got to Go” by relationship expert, Lisa Palmer, and entrepreneur, Lucinder Ellery.

The start of each year always shows a spike in divorce cases. No one should suffer in silence. If you are in a controlling relationship or been subject to any mental or physical abuse then there are organisations, the police and charities to help.
