Planning finances for separation or divorce

Sadly not all relationships last forever, and when you have children together, it makes separation more difficult on both a practical and emotional level.

Tesco Clubcard

Yes it may seem trivial, but I imagine like most entwined couples you only had one Tesco Clubcard account. Now is the time to take the brave steps towards clubcard independence and get your own account.
