What's a woman worth? The maintenance law

Is maintenance law fair, or is it in conflict with feminism?

When it comes to the division of assets and income after divorce, England and Wales have sweeping laws. London is called the divorce capital of Europe, and English judges have transformed parliamentary law on maintenance to favour women. There is disagreement about the impact of modern gender equality. Is it fair that a husband should undertake a lifelong obligation to keep his wife on marriage, regardless of behaviour and changes in women's status? Should spouses be free to make their own maintenance arrangements?
