Is the respondent entitled to share in her husband's more lucrative career?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Hill v. Hill, 1995 CanLII 1493 (BC SC):

22 It is clear on the case law, particularly since Mogue v. Mogue (supra), that the respondent is entitled to share in the husband's more lucrative career. She has more than met her obligations to him in taking on employment at modest wages for menial work at James Bay Lodge. Upon separation, she took a health care aide program in order to find such employment. During the same period, the husband's income has advanced by almost as much as the respondent's total income.
