Edinburgh University Press

Four Court of Session cases of some interest: Wetherhill v Sheikh 2005 Fam LR 7, which might have proved the nail in the coffin for the concept of marriage by cohabitation with habit and repute; Singh v Singh 2005 SLT 749 which adopted a cautious approach to the issue of declaring void a marriage into which the parties had alleged to have been forced; RB v MB 2005 Fam LR 49 which illustrates the lengths to which separated parents will go to harm each other by insisting on court action in relation to their child; and Sweeney v Sweeney 2004 SC 372, a divorce case that led to serial decisions.

Keywords:   Marriage by cohabitation with habit and repute, Forced marriage, Choice of law, Nullity of marriage, Capital gains tax
