Let’s see how the judges bend over backwards to “distinguish” this when a man tries to rely on this decision. It is not gender politics, it is another example of the blatant sexism that exists within the judiciary. Reply Link Anon 21 October 2010 at 11:14 Family court judges and law makers naturally like to redistribute the wealth of the party that has usually earned it to the less well off spouse: it is easy to be generous with other people’s money. But if marriage is to be encouraged (or rather not discouraged), parties must not be put off by the generousity of others with their money if it fails. The asymmetric facts of this case couldn’t have been better designed to confound this approach. Great to see everyone try to contort themselves around the underlying problem, ending with a fudge. A fudge that will produce endless arguments about what’s fair or not, further discouraging marriage. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
