Wedding season is in full swing. Are you getting married? Then remember to sign a marriage contract before the Big Day.

Married in community of property is the default marital system in South Africa unless couples sign an Antenuptial Contract whereby they choose to be married out of community of property.

Here are three reasons why you should sign a marriage contract (Antenuptial Contract) before the Big Day:

  1. Creditors won’t be able to lay their hands on your estate if your partner runs into financial difficulty. Particularly important if either you or your partner are self-employed;
  1. You may acquire assets freely without the assistance of your partner;
  1. You are not “joined at the hip” financially and you may freely enter into contracts without the assistance of your partner.
