Highlights the provisions in the 2005 Act on the power of sheriffs to postpone the granting of a divorce if one party refuses to set the other free and assesses its implications. Comments on the Inner House ruling in Hakeem v Hussain on whether a marriage at a registry office was void for lack of consent on the grounds that the parties believed that consent was required before God.
