Not to rain on your clearly romantically idealized parade, but there is one good thing that marriage brings with it, and that is a proper prenuptial contract. Thor forbid it should ever be an issue, but if you do split up less that amicably, common law will dictate that you share your belongings 50:50 .... which may or may not be a good thing depending on the details.

Maybe you can register your partnership as a close corporation or a trust, just for incase. ;) :P

If you do wish to do a prenup, remember the accrual system applies by default, if not expressly excluded

Indeed.
Funny how people sometimes miss that a marriage is also a legal business relationship, and not just a happily ever after, drive off into the sunset thing.

Wat 'n belaglike argument. Asof die skool nou skielik al moontlike plek is waar kinders afgerig kan word om in jirrejissis te glo! En om nie eers te praat van al die ander gelowe waaraan hulle in elk geval nie blootgestel word om hulle te help met hulle kwansuise "keuse" nie. 'n Groot pot retoriese snot as jy my vra.

You can register a civil union at home affairs, and set up an antinuptial contract along side.

My husband and I got married for financial reasons... I work for a financial institution and he could get staff rates for loans etc only if we were decently married. So we popped into Home affairs, dragged two witnesses out of the neverending queues and got married, went to the bank straight after with our little piece of paper and changed our marital status for the sake of a lower interest bond.

I'm with Boogie though, if it wasnt for the huge difference in interest rates on his half of the bond, we wouldnt have bothered at all. We dont celebrate the anniversary either, although my MIL phones every year to congratulate us....

Not as romantically idealized as you imagine. I understand there are legal implications and impositions being placed on us out here in the real world, but marriage still means nothing to me personally. I find the idea that the state has to get involved a bit repulsive.

I know some couples who were doing the living together thing, and they all indicated their satan spawn lawyers told them this is not as much the case as most believe. Anywho, we will do the court thing at some point. Because, you know, bullshit.
