Ecstasy use is popular in the UK, particularly among the club scene. There are some reasons to believe that its use is decreasing though. A survey performed in 2007 and 2008 found that percent of people aged 16 to 59 had used ecstasy within the last 12 months. However, percent of people aged 16 to 24 admitted using ecstasy within the same time frame. These results led to estimates of million people in the 16 to 59 age range having used ecstasy at least once in their lives. When compared with surveys from the previous five years, use of ecstasy was lower than it had been. The 2003 to 2004 survey found that 2 percent of people aged 16 to 59 and percent of people aged 16 to 24 had taken ecstasy within a year’s time.
The common law accepted the principle that marriage made husband and wife ‘one flesh’ — but what consequences did this have? This unity theory led to men automatically getting control of their wife’s property, and in the late nineteenth century, pressure for reform led to acceptance of so-called ‘separation of property’. But in the twentieth century, it became apparent that the outcome was to favour the financial contributions made by male employment, and there was pressure for the introduction of some form of community of property under which all the contributions of each spouse would be recognised in decisions about the ownership of property. The unity theory also influenced the law of tort: if a man’s careless driving caused injury to his wife, should the insurance company be allowed to refuse to pay because the man would not be allowed to sue for causing injury to ‘himself’? And what was to happen on divorce or death?
