Certain consequences of a marriage cannot be avoided

Certain consequences of a marriage cannot be avoided, even by the inclusion of a diverse clause in the antenuptial contract, for example:

The obligation to have a joint household and to live together as man and wife.

The obligation to treat each other with decency, fairness and respect.

The obligation to allow each other the privileges of marriage.

The obligation to be loyal and committed to each other.


That both parties will attain and retain full legal capacity (in the case that one of or both parties are minors).   (Source Elliot, The South African Notary)
