Financial remedies – Marriage and divorce – Husband ordered to pay wife a lump sum towards her housing costs and thereafter monthly periodical payments – Wife made unwise financial transactions and lost money – Whether the Court of Appeal was wrong to increase monthly payments to account for the wife’s rental expenditure
