It said all personal and secular laws should be amended accordingly. However, it cautioned that at the same time, this principle does not automatically translate to an ‘absolute’ equal split of property at the end of the relationship, as in a number of cases such a yardstick may bring an “unfair burden” to one of the parties. “Thus, it is important to […]
