NAIROBI, 14TH MAY 2015: The women lawyers’ lobby has lost a court battle to have marriage partners automatically share wealth on 50:50 basis upon dissolution of marriage. 

The High Court on Monday rejected Federation of Women Lawyers’ application to declare the Marriage and Properties Act unconstitutional.

The judge ruled that parties to a marriage are entitled to their individual share of contribution to family wealth.
