A woman who married her husband whilst working in his chip shop business has been awarded a £3.9 million divorce settlement.
The judgement was given to the woman who has not been identified by judge Lady Wise.
Lady Wise wrote, “At the time of the parties’ marriage, MMA and his brother TA were already operating the fish and chip shops.
“SCA worked in the business as a counter assistant. During the marriage MMA moved from the fish and chip shop business to the pizzeria business. Again SCA helped in the business, making pizzas.”
Lady Wise ruled that the marriage had broken down “irretrievably” and that there wasn’t any “prospect of reconciliation.”
Lady Wise also said the family’s total assets amounted to £10,279,731 that SCA was entitled to £3,936,565.
Lady Wise added, “Both parties contributed to this marriage in different ways. SCA worked in the fish and chip shops and in the pizzeria…. and running the family home.”
