Whilst in an ideal world it would be nice if all families could stay together and live in harmony until death, we have to accept that going through a divorce is becoming increasingly more common in this modern era.

“Fortunate, indeed, is the man who takes exactly the right measure of himself and holds a just balance between what he can acquire and what he can use.” These words, written by The eighteenth century English physician and educator Philip Latham, could just as easily have been written about trying to achieve the balance between spending happily in the present and saving prudently for retirement.
However, the question of how to do this effectively is not one that is easily answered. As it happens, too many retirement savers find that they either spend profligately in the present, thereby jeopardising their retirement lifestyle, or they prepare with too much caution, experiencing years of unnecessary frugality only to reach retirement with more money than they really need.

The latter was viewed as particularly unfair by many seeing as the result of the referendum, Brexit, is likely to have major impact on the future for many British expats.
