A major victory against forced marriage.

  • Family honour.
  • Loss of money.
  • They are worried that others will get divorced.
  • They are worried they will find it more difficult to get more people into forced marriage.
  • If the student drops out of the university course then the parents should have to refund the university for lost fees.
  • If the student commits suicide due to a forced career choice (and I have seen 8 cases) then the parents should face trial for manslaughter.
  • The parents should face 6 months in jail.
  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable Behaviour.
  • Desertion: Your husband or wife has left you for at least 2 years before you apply for divorce. You can still claim desertion if you have lived together for up to a total of 6 months in this period, but that will not count towards the 2 years.
  • You’ve been separated for at least 2 years. You can apply for a divorce if you’ve been separated for at least 2 years before applying for divorce and you both agree to it. Your husband or wife must agree in writing. It may be possible for you to show that you’ve been separated while living in the same home as your wife or husband as long as you’re not living together as a couple (for example you sleep and eat apart)
  • You’ve been separated for at least 5 years. You can apply for a divorce if you’ve been separated for at least 5 years before applying, even if you husband or wife disagrees
  • Honour- the fact that we are leaving sends a signal to the world that membership of the EU is not all it’s cracked up to be.
  • Loss of money. When we leave the EU they will be £50 million a day down. Before he died I attended a lecture from the late Tony Benn MP who said that if there was ever a referendum to leave the EU the politicians would fight tooth and nail to stay in the EU because they get paid a fortune by the EU. If anything the EU owes us money.
  • They are worried others will leave.
  • They are worried that they will not be able to get other countries to join the EU e.g. Russia.
