Why would a married couple stage an affair? Was Henry VIII really the beginning of the end for marriages? And how is the divorce process different for men and women?

Today Betwixt the Sheets, Kate is joined by Henry Kha, Senior Lecturer at Macquarie University and formerly a legal associate in the Family Court of Australia.

Henry has worked on divorces himself, and today shares the story of their development in the UK legal system.
