Abstract

This article examines the extent to which it is possible and desirable for a respondent to oppose a divorce petition under the Women's Charter. It is suggested that the present approach taken by the Singapore courts is very much dependent on the perceived role of the law and the values placed on marriage, divorce and individual autonomy.
