Now this is totally bizarre!

 

 

The estranged wife of an expatriate property tycoon has failed in her bid to secure part of his fortune, after he successfully argued that his loathing of the British climate earned him immunity from the UK divorce courts.

 

Maria Saward had launched a case through the English legal system for a share of her husband Paul’s property portfolio. But Mr Saward, a keen yachtsman, managed to convince a judge that his dislike of the weather on these shores meant he no longer thought of himself as a UK resident. The couple met in Majorca, married in Gibraltar, in 2009, and lived near Alicante, on Spain’s Costa Blanca, until Mrs Saward left her husband in June 2011, following a row, with her husband vowing “not to pay her a pennyâ€.
