Trivia: Who cannot legally be married?
Just about all barriers to being married have been removed. In South Africa mixed race marriages were prohibited until the 1990s, same-sex marriages were prohibited until 2006. Today almost any 2 adults may get married. There are, however, several degrees of relation that may not be married, under South African law. These are:
- Father or mother-in-law
- Daughter or son-in-law
- Grandmother or grandmother-in-law
- Spouse’s grand parent
- Step grandchild
- Grandchild’s spouse
- Uncle or aunt
- Niece or nephew
- Grand niece or nephew
