This paper will deal very briefly with a few matters which by reason of their practical importance and also because of the very nature of customary union, often come up for judicial consideration in the event of the dissolution of the union. Although the dissolution of the union in South Africa outside Natal can be effected extra-judicially, the question of the restoration or forfeiture of dowry cattle is usually resolved by means of a court action.
