Proceedings versus Alternative Dispute Resolution Advantages, Disadvantages and Differences Word count: wordss In England, the use of Alternative Dispute Resolutions (also known as ADR) have been on the 3/5(8).
They are both women. Their complaint has been that the law excludes them from publicly celebrating their love and commitment to each other in marriage. Far from enabling them to regularise their union, it shuts them out, unfairly and unconstitutionally, they claim.
This, as contended for in the second case,  is where the further level of exclusion operates. The Marriage Act provides that a minister of religion who is designated as a marriage officer may follow the marriage formula usually observed by the religion concerned. The reference to wife or husband is said to exclude same-sex couples.
It was not disputed by any of the parties that neither the common law nor statute provide for any legal mechanism in terms of which Ms Fourie and Ms Bonthuys and other same-sex couples could marry. Section 9 1 of the Constitution now reads: And if it does, what is the appropriate remedy that this Court should order?
They asked for an order declaring that the law recognises their right to marry, and a mandamus ordering the Minister of Home Affairs and the Director-General to register their marriage in terms of the Marriage Act.

The applicants also omitted to address all the consequences that would flow from the recognition of such a union or how it should be dissolved.

Moreover marriage touches on many other aspects of law, including labour law, insurance and tax. These issues are of importance not only to the applicants and the gay and lesbian community but also to society at large.
The judgment emphasised that the views of the SCA on the matters that arose were of considerable importance. The nature of the dispute raised by the appeal was, as the High Court had correctly held in issuing a negative rule 18 2 certificate, pre-eminently suited to be considered first by the SCA.
The application for leave to appeal directly to this Court was accordingly refused. Two separate judgments were delivered. All five judges held that the exclusion of same-sex couples from the common law definition of marriage constituted unfair discrimination against them.
The reasons for coming to this conclusion diverged in certain significant respects, however, resulting in different approaches being taken as to the order to be made. It also provides that when developing the common law the Court must promote the spirit, purport and objects of the Bill of Rights.
Doing so is not a choice. Where the common law is deficient, the courts are under a general obligation to develop it appropriately.Using alternative dispute resolution methods early can save both the time and money involved in taking a dispute to court.
