In its consultation paper on ‘Reform of Family Law’ the Law Commission has passed a statement that it is important that regardless if the wife is financially or monetarily contributing to the family income, her other contributions towards the family like household labour, home management and child-bearing and care, should authorize her for an equal share in a marriage and thus, all property for income gained after marriage, should be equally divided equally on being divorced.
