2016 is a LEAP YEAR!!

  • Many of you will know what I am getting at here. 29 February is a day when tradition states that women can propose to their partners. (Of course these days we can do it any day of the year and in any year!)You may not know however that the partner was supposed to buy the lady a gift or 12 pairs of gloves if he refused! Gloves? Apparently to hide the fact she had no ring and I guess 12 because it’s a pair for each month! However, if your partner says “YES”, you might be letting yourself in for more than you bargained for. So, IF you are contemplating popping the question any time soon (or you suspect someone is about to propose to you) , you just might less exciting as it is want to consider the legal implications for you of either approach. I am an International Family Lawyer at The International Family Law Group LLP www.iflg.uk.com Please visit our website or better still come along to the Costa Women’s International Women’s Day Conference at Andalucía Lab, Marbella on Friday 11 March 2016. Some of you who attended last year might remember meeting me there . This year we are sponsoring the event and although I am very sad and disappointed to say I will not be coming along this year my colleague, Lucy Loizou will be attending in my stead and would be happy to answer any of your questions either there or if more appropriate, subsequently. Please make her feel as welcome as you did me. I thoroughly recommend the conference. Last year’s was absolutely great, really relaxed, friendly and enjoyable (and I knew no-one before I went), but I came away very energised and motivated.
