Does the length of a marriage affect a divorce settlement?

The length of a marriage does affect a divorce settlement in the UK. While there is no specific legal definition of a long or short marriage, a marriage of less than 5 years is generally considered short. Each case is unique and the duration of the marriage is just one of various factors considered when determining a fair settlement, together with the contribution and needs of each party, and any children involved.
