Mr Justice Baker, at the Family Division of the High Court, has urged Marilyn Levesque and Damien Hancox, a commodities broker, who split up five months after spending £200,000 on their wedding, to reach a divorce agreement, after being told that Ms Levesque, a model, had already spent more than £230,000 on lawyers, and that their legal bills exceeded their marriage budget.
