'All’s fair in love and war' is a proverb attributed to John Lyly (1553-1606). It is often used to describe a situation in which people do not follow the usual rules of behavior and do things which are normally considered unfair. In my 25 years of practicing Family Law I often have to remind people that their expectations that things will be fair when dealing with matters of the heart is unrealistic.
