Case study: Mr Bean’s divorce

Though Mr Bean and his wife got divorced in the UK, the process is pretty much the same.

Mr Bean and his wife of 24 years were granted a divorce based on the reason of his unreasonable behaviour within 65 seconds. Divorce papers made public did not provide any information on the unreasonable ground.

Unreasonable behaviour

According to the head of family law at Slater and Gordon, unreasonable behaviour is the “most common ground for divorce.” Like the lawyer said, “even in the happiest of marriages, it’s always possible to find behaviour which can be described as unreasonable.”

See: “Rowan Atkinson divorced in 65 seconds on grounds of his ‘unreasonable behaviour’”, The Telegraph, 10 November 2015
