Which marital regimes apply in Namibia?

Most civil marriages in Namibia are in community of property. If you want to be married out of community of property you must make (enter into) a contract before you are married called an ante-nuptial contract and register it at the office of the Registrar of Deeds. But if you live north of the old “Police Zone”, in the areas known as Owamboland, Kavango and Caprivi, marriages that take place between “Africans” on or after 1 August 1950 are out of community of property.
