Wrap up the formalities before tying the knot.
It is important to note that The Matrimonial Property Act 88 of 1994 apply to the proprietary aspects of marriages concluded after 1 November 1984. The matrimonial property system you elect under the Act has a direct consequence on your financial future and the position of your assets.
It is important to also note that should you not enter into any form of antenuptial contract before your wedding day, your marriage will be ‘in community of property” automatically.
There are 3 primary marital regimes available:
1. In community of property;
2. Out of community of property excluding the accrual system; and
3. Out of community of property with an accrual system.
One specific regime is not necessarily the best for each and every couple and depends on the individual needs and circumstances of each couple. It is important to give careful considerations to the marital regime that will govern your marriage, and to make an informed decision, as this becomes relevant in scenarios of either:
Donations between spouses;
Legal claims against spouses;
Estate planning; as well as
Income tax Matters.
