A legacy to ponder

There's a very nice piece in the Daily Mail today relating the story (which I did not know) of pioneering divorce campaigner Caroline Norton, who "was a moving force behind one of the most emancipating pieces of legislation in our history, the Marriage and Divorce Act, which became law 150 years ago this month". The piece goes on to relate the history of divorce laws in this country since then, and ponders what she would have thought of the "social landscape today, where divorce has become so commonplace". An interesting read.
