A Habit That Brings Scots Law Into Disrepute

(p.29) Commentary No 6: July 2000
Professor Norrie's Commentaries on Family Law

Kenneth McK Norrie

Edinburgh University Press

Written at a time when the concept of marriage by cohabitation with habit and repute remained part of Scots law, this chapter discusses two of the last cases on the topic. In Ackerman v Logan's Executor 2002 SLT 37, the pursuer failed in her attempt to be recognised as the wife of a man she had not gone through any ceremony of marriage with. And in Vosilius v Vosilius 2000 Fam LR 58 the marriage was established.

Keywords:   Marriage, Marriage by cohabitation with habit and repute – nature of repute, Cohabitants’ claims on separation
