I think all law is worth reviewing from time to time but, on the general issue of 'fairness', no, I don't think divorce law in the UK is unduly 'biased'.

Neither do I think a couple of divorce settlement cases on the absolute extreme margin tell us too much about the overall situation.
The principles may well carry across to others but the realities of a multi-million £ settlement are never going to mean much to more than a handful.

The fact is that women, generally, get a really crap deal out of divorce.

Women tend to be the ones to give up work for extended periods to have children and 'suffer the consequences' of that in terms of low pay, poorer career prospects and hugely reduced pension opportunities.

That's not to say that that can never be the reality for a father too but it is undeniable that the obvious gender inequality is there and it mostly applies to women.
