  • Marriage should be put on the same footing as a commercial partnership with everything sorted out in advance and embodied in a deed of partnership.

    The court should be stripped of its power to ignore, modify or tear up the agreement just because A or B no longer feels like being bound by its terms.

    I have a strong feeling, however, that we will still see the familiar sexual bias of the courts and "campaigning" judges pleasing themselves. Where the woman is wealthier the agreement will be enforced, where the man is wealthier it will be ignored to favour the female.
