Marriage and equality: What’s love got to do with it?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Contemporary debate about marriage equality tends to be polarised: either supporting ’traditional’ marriage or equal recognition of loving relationships. The law’s involvement in the institution of marriage has however, traditionally been preoccupied with property. Now that property is largely dealt with through channels other than marriage, this article suggests that it is time for the law’s approach to marriage to evolve to meet the more contemporary social need of equality.
