LONDON — Britain’s Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that the passage of time is no barrier to a financial settlement in a divorce case, giving a British woman the right to pursue a claim against her ex-husband decades after they parted ways.

In a landmark ruling, the court decided that Kathleen Wyatt, 55, was entitled to seek compensation from ex-husband Dale Vince, 53. The couple married in 1981, raised two children together and lived a lifestyle of New Age nomads. When they divorced in 1992, they had no assets or income.
