Thank you Barend. The correlated question is that given the South African legal system does not see separation as being a recognition of a formal break down of the marriage (and hence date of separation), but only divorce (thus date of divorce), does the accrual system continue to have effect even though you are no longer living together? Will the court recognize the fact that you have not had a marriage relationship since separation and that any assets built up by either spouse during this period should not be taken into account for settlement purposes?
