Civil Union or Same Sex Marriage

Civil Union or Same Sex Marriage

 

 

 

Partners of either opposite or same sex relationships may wish to enter into a civil union which can be registered either by way of a marriage or civil partnership. The couple can choose if they want their civil union to be known as a marriage or civil partnership. The legal consequences in terms of the Marriage Act will apply so it is therefore crucial to exercise all options in terms of registering an antenuptial contract with or without the accrual system.
