Leave to appeal has been granted to the husband in Charman v Charman commented on at December  Fam Law 1019. Following a long marriage, in which both parties started with nothing and in which both played their full part in the marriage, wholly exceptionally, the wealth created was of extraordinary proportions from extraordinary talent and energy. Taking everything properly into account Coleman J awarded the wife about £48m, just under 37% of the total. The Court of Appeal is due to hear the case in March 2007.
