Towards Achieving Equal Rights in Marriage

“Women's organisations and groups have suggested that the amendment to the Marriage Law Amendment Bill 2012 should be redrafted to make it mandatory for the court to order that both immovable and movable property acquired during the subsistence of marriage be divided equally between the wife and husband. It has also been suggested that the court should take into account any disadvantage suffered by the woman or the children with her and give her a further share of the property.”
