Abstract

This Article is an extensive critique of Lenore J. Weitzman's The Divorce Revolution. Mr. Abraham generally questions the reliability of Weitzman's research data and Weitzman's contention that no-fault divorce statutes and the law of equitable distribution of marital property allow a husband to abandon a marriage with no "penalty" other than a half share of marital property together with meager support obligations, yet retain the most productive "'family" asset: his career.
