* Before the Act was passed divorces had to happen through a private Act of Parliament, which was a slow and expensive process. * After the act, divorces could happen through the law courts. However, the grounds for divorcee were on a unequal basis. If a husband wanted to divorcee his wife he had to prove adultery. However, if a wife wanted to divorce her husband she had to prove not only his adultery, but either bigamy, rape, sodomy, bestiality, cruelty or long term desertion.
Yet, despite trade union/government attempts to improve wages and working conditions, working class women remained at the bottom of the economic scale. Middle class ? single or married, women should remain at home, look after children and engage in charitable work. IF they were forced to work, then they worked as a governess. Opening up the world of work to women: 1901-1930 Domestic service was looked upon favourably for working class women as it prepared them to lead lives as wives/mothers.

"In conclusion I believe that it was mainly due to the conservative failings that led to the 1906 landslide elections. The Tory party was headed by two main figures, Balfour and Chamberlain who brought the party to ruins preceding the rise in liberal fortunes headed by Salisbury. The liberal propaganda machine helped to put the conservatives to rest whilst they continued their uprising. The Liberal united around the conservative failings and this proved to be a force for both non-conformity and the working class."
"In conclusion, I believe that because Gladstone was so in tune with making Home Rule successful, it clouded the prospect of disaster and division. I believe that this created the divison within the party more than the debate of Irish Home Rule. It was bad that people in his own party were beginning to stray him but even worse when the liberals moved to the conservatives; it shows that there was more to the weaknesses in the party than just the dispute about Home Rule, and that people in the liberal party seemed to be unhappy with other methods of Gladstone's in the past (Such as social reform etc). Suffice to say, I believe that Gladstone's character and ways of handling the Irish matter created most division, along with his method of governing previously. Regardless, I still believe that the Irish Home Rule dispute played a completely vital role in dividing the party as it was a catalyst for division, but not the main cause for the weakness of the liberal party."
"In conclusion, 'Henry VII deliberately exploited the rights of the crown in order to make it once again rich and powerful' is a statement, which is not entirely true. Although Henry did exploit the rights of the crown to some extent, he did use a lot of other means to make the crown once again rich and powerful.
