|Keyword(s)||Antenuptial contract and Proprietary consequences of a marriage|
The main purpose of an antenuptial contract is to regulate the proprietary consequences of a marriage between two intended consorts. Where the proprietary consequences of marriage are not excluded or altered by an antenuptial contract, community of profit and loss will result from such marriage - that is, a marriage in community of property. In this article I propose concentrating mainly on the deeds office practice pertaining to the registration of antenuptial contracts in a deeds registry.
