Divorce Reform Act 1969

The Divorce Reform Act (1969) enabled divorce to become easier for unhappy couples to access. This was a revolutionary piece of legislation as it enabled a ‘no fault’ divorce to be requested. This meant that an individual did not need grounds, such as adultery or abandonment, in order to get divorced. As a result of this legislation the overall divorce rate and total number of divorces has steadily increased since 1969.
