First of all, analyzing the extent of legal pluralism in these countries, we will move on to analyzing the double matrimonial discipline brought about by customary law, on the one hand, and imported law, on the other, and then arrive at the recognition of how legal pluralism can be an aggregating factor of the legal systems analyzed.
