Luke brings the case against his fiancée, Quay. They are planning their destination wedding and have a limited number of on-site cabins available. Luke would like to split the cabins 50-50. But, Quay says they should be allocated proportionally, so the two of them have an equal percentage of guests in off-site hotels. Who’s right? Who’s wrong?
