A free floating commentary on culture, politics, economics, and religion based on a passionate commitment to the truth and a desire graciously to refute that which is contrary to it….
"He must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it."
--Titus 1:9, Revised Standard Version

When someone in authority says “these reforms will bring the law into line with public expectation and attitudes”, you know that it is time to worry. Those were the words of Professor Elizabeth Cooke, of the Law Commission, as she proposed a change in the law to give the surviving half of an unmarried couple the automatic right to inherit a proportion of their late partner’s wealth. At present, unmarried couples who die intestate may have to go to court when one dies and can face a challenge from their partner’s family.
At the risk of sounding like an outraged Victorian parson snooping through the windows of cottages on the lookout for couples living in sin, I can’t see a problem with the law as it stands. Yes, it does make life difficult for couples who can’t be bothered either to get married or make a will. But there is every reason why the law should encourage marriage.
It is not a case of moralising, but money.
Read it all.
