The UK's highest court dismissed Tini Owens's appeal to divorce her husband. She must now wait another two years before she can divorce him, without consent, on the basis of being apart for five years.
Marilyn Bell, alongside other notable lawyers, react in this piece by Frances Gibb in The Times on the recent ruling which has divided opinion.
Marilyn said "it has left lawyers felling very uncomfortable." and that "It isn't good news for Mrs Owens, but it should significantly increase the pressure for a no-fault divorce."
