Would you give up your assets and everything you have to be a housewife?

What do you do if your partner insists that you cannot work?

Azania Mosaka speaks to Kathleen Nthabiseng Monareng who is a lawyer on what to look at when you take that decision and what happens in a case of customary law.

There needs to be lobola and after that, there needs to be an integration of the woman, commonly called the handing over.
