oa De Rebus - Muslim divorce and the 1996 Divorce Amendment Act The cart before the horse

Volume 1999, Issue 381
  • ISSN : 0250-0329



The purpose of this article is to clarify some issues regarding Muslim divorces which have been the topic of debate in previous issues of De Rebus (1997 DR 495; 1998 (Jan) DR 55; 1998 (Aug) DR 31). The Divorce Amendment Act 95 of 1996 as it is discussed in this article has relevance only for Muslim parties who intend to terminate a lawful civil marriage but who have also entered into a religious union with each other only. Polygynous unions as such are therefore not discussed here.
