Abstract

Reviews developments in family law in Scotland, including the coming into effect of the Civil Partnerships Act 2004 and the enactment of the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2005. 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.
