Abstract
Article 10 of the Korean Constitution guarantees that all citizens are equal in the

eyes of the law and that discrimination based on sex is prohibited.1) However, traditional Confucian ideals that comprise the customs of South Korea often conflict with this Constitutional aim. Although family law has transformed greatly throughout the history of South Korea, the principle of sex equality in the law of divorce was disregarded for many centuries. This essay will examine the evolution of sex equality in South Korean Divorce Law.
