Mr. Wandering-eye was happily married for 25 years, but true to his name committed an indiscretion that culminated in a divorce. In terms of the settlement agreement he must pay maintenance to his ex in the amount of R35 000 per month. Due the acrimonious nature of the divorce Mr. Wandering-eye immediately changed his will and left the whole of his estate to his only daughter. His single status continued for 3 years after which he married his 40-year-old secretary, Miss. Starry-eye, out of community of property and without the accrual system.
