In this note it is intended to deal briefly with the recent modifications of a customary marriage by the KwaZulu Legislative Assembly. In 1978 the legislative assembly appointed a commission of enquiry into the legal disabilities of Zulu women. The recommendations made by the commission eventually resulted in the KwaZulu Act on the Code of Zulu Law 6 of 1981.
