Judge applauds the collapse of the nuclear family


The collapse of the nuclear family should be welcomed and applauded, Britain’s most senior Family Judge has said.

Sir James Munby, President of the High Court’s Family Division, said in a recent speech at Liverpool University that the modern family was ‘complex’ and took ‘an almost infinite variety of forms’.

His comments reflect the reality of the modern family and the fact that family law needed to adapt itself to these realities.  He called the existing pace of change ‘maddeningly slow’.
