Sharia courts rule on sex lives in Britain
Ten currently operate across the country, with around 95 per cent of their cases relating to matrimonial issues.
Although the hearings have no basis in British law, they are attended voluntarily by Muslim couples to settle disputes without referral to the recognised authorities.
In some cases they can order wives to be more attentive to their husbands' needs, or deal with releasing spouses from bad or forced marriages.
