Is this show trying to tell us something about South African men? Like as in, no matter how good your husband, he is going to cheat…it’s just a matter of time.
Nandipha dealt with it and she was the only one willing to work things out. The help and support of her in laws provided safety and comfort, but later she discovered that she can’t remain with them for long.
Now we have to endure Nandipha being sucked out of her hard earned cash because the mistress wants to milk her for all she’s got.
Len….oh! just hang me now please. I love Len…wait….maybe that is a strong word to use, given his supersonic trip to the bottom of the least engaging characters to watch. PS: Len..Pick ‘N Pay does sell shaving blades and a hair cut won’t be that bad. You are a sex symbol after-all…or maybe NOT!
Am sure there are some couples who find similarities in this storyline. I for one find it to be very sick and twisted. Another reason not to get married!
Nadipha needs a lawyer and Vusi must just step aside.
This whole storyline is sick…HE CHEATED…now he wants HER MONEY? Dude you are SICK!
Think…c’mon I know you can…just THINK!
MY ADVICE: An Air Prenuptial Agreement!
Marriage in community of property
- South Africa's Common Law provides that when parties enter into a marriage without signing an ANC prior to the date of the marriage, such a marriage will automatically be regarded as a marriage in Community of Property.
- The result of the Marriage in Community of Property is that a joint estate is formed with the parties acting as joint administrators with equal powers and the right to act independently from each other (with a few exceptions).
- Assets are equally shared and the parties are jointly and severally liable for all debts incurred by either party to the marriage.
- Each party has right of disposal over the assets of the joint estate. Although such as those relating to fixed property, surety ship and credit agreements requires the consent of the other spouse.
- Informal consent from both is required for transactions such as the selling of movable goods of the joint household, such as furniture.
- Consent is not a requirement for transactions relating to trade, business or profession of the spouses.
- The Act provides for the protection of the spouses should one act to the prejudice of the other.
- There is financial equality at times, to the detriment of the other party, for example in the case of insolvency.
- There is no juristic equality (for example consent is theoretically required in order to trade with estate assets).
- Certain assets may be excluded from the joint estate, but this category is extremely limited (i.e. assets acquired as a result of an inheritance or a donation).
- It promotes both legal and economic equality of the spouses. During the marriage and on its dissolution both partners are entitled to a half share in the joint estate and each one has equal powers of administration.
- No additional documents need to be signed.
- Insolvency of one of the spouses affects the total communal property. Where a risk of insolvency exists, it is not the desired system.
The other two forms of marriage are:
- Marriage out of community of property and excluding accrual.
- Marriage out of community of property with the accrual.
