Re: Spock and T'Pring?

You need to remember that T'Pring invoked a legal right that was very rarely used in modern times. To prevent frivolous or malicious "divorces" it was considered necessary to make the consequences for the woman something that would make her think several times before even considering it. Therefore, to make her literal property - evidently an old law that was "still on the books" - was deemed such a severe consequence that very few women were prepared to accept, ie. the legal and financial risks and loss of accompanying social status.
