Mrs Owens has lost her appeal to the Supreme Court concerning her marriage to Mr Owens. Mrs Owens was seeking to overturn an earlier decision that her grounds for divorce had not met the necessary standard. The Judgment effectively outlined that Mrs Owens must remained married to Mr Owens and that her grounds for a divorce based on unreasonable behaviour were insufficient. This judgment could have wide reaching consequences to parties and lawyers alike. Could we see future divorce petitions using more extensive grounds of unreasonable behaviour?
