VINEY, JOSHUA,WILLIAM (2011) The Modern Divorce. Masters thesis, Durham University.
This thesis sets out to explore divorce law and current reforms. It proposed five themes. Firstly, that no-fault divorce law could be adopted. Secondly, that voluntary mediation may pose several benefits. Thirdly, that the two main aims of the current law have not been met. The stability of marriage has not been buttressed and the current procedure is frequently unjust and may exacerbate bitterness, distress and humiliation. Fourthly, that the law could seek to avoid conflicted aims, focussing solely on providing an economically accessible process with minimum bitterness, distress and humiliation. Fifthly, that the current reforms of the law may be conflicted, repeating past mistakes.
