RECENT HIGH COURT RULING THAT NEWLYWEDS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

THE HIGH COURT RECENTLY RULES ON A CASE THAT DEALT WITH THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE AND THE IMPORTANCE OF SAYING ‘I DO’.

In short, after 2 years of courtship they got married and a week afterward, the husband began conducting himself towards his wife in an 'intentionally insulting and denigrating way' and asked her to leave their home.


She discovered that he omitted to disclose that when he proposed he already considered the relationship to be broken down irretrievably.
 

She claimed under the lex aquilla based on the fraudulent misrepresentation for costs incurred for the wedding and claimed on the impairment of her dignity and reputation arising from the conduct and circumstances and that the circumstances became public knowledge among their friends and family.


The court ruled that her first claim cannot succeed and Judge Denise Fisher ruled that she could proceed with her claim around the impairment of her dignity and stated that this was especially pertinent in the age of social media during which the potential for profound and widespread abuse of the dignity of intimate partner has increased exponentially.
