The antenuptual agreement falls under South African law as an essential legal document for your marriage. The antenuptual contract exists to determine whether your marriage will exist in community of property / out of community of property, and with or without the accrual system.
Having such a legal document in place provides important benefits for your marriage, some of which include:
- Preventing your marriage from automatically being in community of property.
- Creating transparency from the onset in your relationship by documenting the rights, duties and consequences of your marriage.
- Preventing disputes with your spouse in cases of divorce.
