Britain’s most senior judge has thrown her weight behind the Times campaign for the law to be changed to end fault-based divorce. Baroness Hale of Richmond, the president of the Supreme Court, said that it was time to look again at proposals made when she was at the Law Commission in the 1990s. Under the present system, people must accuse their husband or wife of being at fault — usually through adultery — to end their marriage without waiting for at least two years. This has led to claims that couples are lying about each other’s conduct to expedite divorce, and it is in any event harmful to children and the relationship between the parents, Lady Hale said.
