Resumé

The chapter offers a historical overview of the development of Danish divorce legislation, and understands it as being on the one hand of an "accidental" character, but on the other hand characterized by two rather constant features: gender equality and a close connection to the Danish State. Given this background, the chapter asks how the regulation can support Muslim women in having their choices respected by society and at the same time support sompliance with the historically developed basic principles of Danish law. In this respect we - very tentatively - suggest to approach these challenges by bringing in a choice-architectoral perspective, i.e. by leaving marriage and divorce out of the social security legislation.
