MetadataShow full item record
Prior to the enactment of the Matrimonial Causes Amendment Act No. 11 of 1987 there were two different sets of divorce laws in Zimbabwe, one applicable to monogamous marriages contracted under the general law and the other to potentially polygamous or polygamous marriages contracted in terms of customary law. Thus the dissolution of monogamous marriages contracted under the Marriage Act, Chapter 37, or under some foreign law look place in terms of Roman-Dutch common law and statute law whereas the dissolution of customary law marriages took place in accordance with customary law.
