What is the relationship of a husband and wife and what is the impact of the relationship on the marriage?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from G.J.E. v. J.D.E., 2003 BCSC 1325 (CanLII):

Mr. and Ms. G.J.E. were married for almost 26 years prior to their separation. For most of that time Ms. G.J.E. cared for the children of the marriage and the management of the household. In Moge v. Moge, L’Heureux-Dubé J. stated at ¶ 84: As marriage should be regarded as a joint endeavour, the longer the relationship endures, the closer the economic union, the greater will be the presumptive claim to equal standards of living upon its dissolution [reference omitted].
