Judgment of the Court of Justice, K. B., Case C-117/01 (7 January 2004)

In its judgment of 7 January 2004, in Case C-117/01, K. B., the Court of Justice points out that legislation such as that at issue in the main proceedings which, in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights, prevents a couple from fulfilling the marriage requirement which must be met for one of them to be able to benefit from a part of the salary of the other must be regarded as being, in principle, incompatible with the requirements of Article 141 of the EC Treaty concerning the principle of equal pay for men and women.
