What is the compensatory basis for relief for a recipient spouse who takes on primary childcare and household responsibilities?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Yemm v Marshall, 2018 BCSC 1470 (CanLII):

The compensatory basis for relief recognizes that sacrifices made by a recipient spouse in assuming primary childcare and household responsibilities often result in a lower earning potential and fewer future prospects of financial success (Moge v. Moge, 1992 CanLII 25 (SCC), [1992] 3 S.C.R. 813 at 861-863; Bracklow v. Bracklow, 1999 CanLII 715 (SCC), [1999] 1 S.C.R. 420 at para. 39).
