Marriage & Divorce in the liberal imagination


Marriage & Divorce in the liberal imagination, by Colin Hart, 2020, 27pp, Price £3.00


This short but incisive booklet defends the permanency of the marital union against attempts to legislate for no-fault divorce. The booklet highlights the beneficial nature of marriage to individuals and society and the reasons why the public interest is served by healthy marriages. It examines the liberal concepts that have undermined marriage and what happens when a society abandons the traditional understanding of marriage.

In the wake of the passing of Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020, this booklet draws on the best evidence available to illustrate the damage done by permissive divorce laws.
