Within Muslim communities in Australia, there is great diversity in Islamic practice and religiosity. When it comes to marriage and divorce, however, many Muslims still wish to observe religious procedures alongside civil ones, and while marriage is relatively straightforward, di...vorce raises more complications. The situation of women in 'limping' marriages in particular has raised debates among Muslims and the Australian public regarding the autonomy of Muslim women and the function of community family law processes.
