In South African law can someone commit you to a financial obligation without your consent? Currently going through a dicovre and he clicked the box on the school portal under fincinal obligations which now makes us both legally responsible for school fees. I do not have the money for private school fees. previously these were paid for by his discretionary family trust which has now been withdrawn and he is arguing school fees are 50/50 responsibility and has committed us to both to paying.

Can you sue for narcassistic abuse in South Africa? Is there precedent for this?
