Yesterday the Supreme Court heard the divorce matter of Mr and Mrs Owens. The decision is much anticipated as it will give an indication as to whether the highest court will soften the position of the previous decisions to allow Mrs Owens a divorce based upon unreasonable behaviour. At the same time the calls for a "no fault" divorce system became louder. Lawyers and individuals alike await this decision with much interest!
Mrs Owens, who describes herself as being “locked in” to her 40-year marriage, now seeks a ruling from the supreme court that she should not have to prove her husband’s “unreasonable behaviour” at all.
