According to new research from the Co-op, a quarter of divorcees in the UK have considered reconciliation with their ex and 12 per cent actually got back together. Of these, 73 per cent cited managing to forgive an infidelity as the main reason, while 40 per cent simply admitted still loving their ex. This has been called a “boomerang divorce” or “yo-yo couples” – divorcees who get back together with their ex-spouse.
One example is the former footballer Jimmy Greaves who, last week, remarried his ex-wife Irene, 59 years after their first wedding and 40 years after their divorce in 1977.
