The success of the marriage depends to some extent on the consensus reached by a couple before the marriage, regarding the matrimonial property system to govern their marriage (the pre-nuptial agreement reached), referred to as the antenuptial agreement (ANC) in South Africa.
However, since this is so pivotal to a couple’s future together, how can newly-weds be expected to envisage circumstances that would warrant such careful consideration and planning, and still make sensible decisions regarding the types marriage contracts, if they had never been exposed to any of it?
Getting your head around the various options of ‘married in community of property’ or ‘out of community of property’, ‘antenuptial contract with accrual’ or ‘without accrual’, and so on, can be rather daunting. Especially since it might not even be relevant at the time of executing the antenuptial contract.
Since prospective spouses have to decide together what the consequences of the various systems will mean for them, it is crucial for anyone contemplating a wedding to consider obtaining professional guidance before making some of the most critical decisions, sometimes with irreversible long-term consequences.
Theuns Hurter is devoted to his clients and will guide and assist you to make the right decisions and formulate them into a perfectly tailored antenuptial agreement.
