Not strictly money-related, but I cannot resist directing your attention to this article in the Daily Telegraph (originally from Divorce-Online, but I can’t find the story on their site) about the increasing role Facebook is playing in divorce petitions, taking over from Friends Reunited.

Times are changing so quickly that sometimes it feels difficult to keep up.
