Hi Noreen

You can get married the, but will have to be confirmed in SA once done. It will the. Have to be registered here at home affairs once it has been done in Vietnam,.

If you do not register it here then no record of the marriage will be available in SA. Is has consequences when you get divorced and the marriage is not registered.

How will all this effect the legal spouse in case of filing for divorce?
Hi Noreen

It will mean that everything will be on a in community of propery basis if not registered. This means that everything will be divided on a 50% basis and the other will be entitled to 50% of your estate. This is not an ideal position.
