As the world is getting smaller and smaller and is easier to travel between countries, an "international wedding" becomes a greater reality for many couples. This type of marriage may seem awfully romantic and appealing, but can turn quickly sour when questions regarding the matrimonial property regime of the parties are raised at divorce or death.
A vital step in planning your marriage is to choose the correct "marital regime" that will suit both parties, which is registerable in South African Law, namely:-
- In community of property.
- Out of Community of Property (With or Without Accrual).
