Abstract

In a recent SCA judgement, the court opened the door for unmarried couples to be able to claim from their partners in the event of a break-up. The SCA's decision in (181/2011) [2012] ZASCA 29 has laid the foundation for claims based on a tacit universal partnership. This is a huge step for women's rights in South Africa and will have the effect of empowering them.
