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



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.
