    Abstract

    Discusses, from a Scottish perspective, the House of Lords judgment in Miller v Miller on whether the Family Law (Scotland) Act 1985 s.9(1), under which the court may order that financial provision should be paid to a spouse on divorce for a period not exceeding three years in order to achieve a "clean break", was fairly applied in cases where the wife gave up a highly paid career to support that of the husband. © 2011 Sweet & Maxwell
