Sharia divorces could be allowed after legal ruling
by Richard Alleyne
Divorces settled by religious courts including Sharia are a step closer to being allowed under British law after a landmark legal decision.
The prospect came after a couple had their divorce settlement under Beth Din, or Jewish law, referred to by the High Court.
According to the Times, it is the first time in British legal history where an English family judge has agreed to refer a divorce dispute to a religious court.
