3 Ways of getting Married

In Community of Property
Out of Community of Property Without Accrual System
Out of Community of Property With Inclusion of the Accrual System

With this option you do not have to sign any agreement prior to the wedding.

Before the wedding, each party will have his/her own separate estate. Immediately upon marriage, the 2 separate estates are automatically joined in to ONE undivided join estate. What ever each party had before date of marriage, will become the joint property of both parties.

Should one party pass away, or in the event of a divorce, the joint estate will be splitt 50/50 without considering who brought what in to the marriage, or who bought what during the existance of the marriage.

We do not recomend this option

 

With this option the parties have to sign an antenuptial agreement PRIOR to the wedding day.

In terms of this option, each party will remain the sole owner of his/her respective property aquired prior and during the marriage. This also includes debt.

Each party will continue to build his/her own individual estate

Upon the deach of one of the parties, or in the event of divorce, the one party will not share in the assets or debt of the other.

This is a good option to consider where one or both parties have their own businesses or plan to start their own businesses in future.

 

 

With this option the parties have to sign an antenuptial agreement PRIOR to the wedding day.

In terms of this option, each party will remain sole owner of his/her property aquired prior to the wedding, but any accrual during the marriage will be split 50/50 between the parties in the instance of death or divorce.

 

Any antenuptial agreement has to be signed by the parties prior to the wedding day. The agreement has a specific format and must be registered with the Deeds Office.

If you get married without signing an antenuptial agreement, you will automatically be married IN COMMUNITY OF PROPERTY.

This can be changed after the marriage, but only on application to court.
