What Reform is Most Needed?

Arthur Conan Doyle

If Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were given supreme power, a power as great as both Houses of Parliament, for a single day, he would exercise it in the direction of the reform of the divorce laws. "The divorce laws,' he writes, "are so arranged at present that divorce is practically impossible for a poor man, that people are tied without hope of release to lunatics, drunkards, and criminals, and great numbers (more than two hundred thousand individuals) are separated by law, and yet are not free to marry again — a fact which cannot be conducive to public morality."
