POSTSCRIPT: The BBC was also one of the 'culprits', reporting that the divorce could go through before the World Cup.

There is only one small point upon which I would disagree with Ms Bourn: the article states that the respondent to the divorce must file the acknowledgement of the divorce proceedings within 14 days - I think that should be 7 days.
UPDATE: Now corrected to 7 days.
