Chapter Summary

This chapter on the relationship between spouses contains several articles concerning rights and obligations of spouses and matrimonial property regimes. The husband and wife shall be equal in the matrimonial and familial relationship. Where the spouses have not contracted an agreement of matrimonial property and the special matrimonial property regime is not applicable, the general matrimonial property regime shall be applied. The general matrimonial property regime shall be regarded as the Common Property Regime during the existence of marriage. The spouses may come to an agreement as to whether the property acquired during the existence of the marriage or prior to the marriage is to be owned by each party, jointly owned or partially owned by each party or partially owned by both parties. When statutory grounds emerge, according to law or the court's declaration, the common matrimonial property regime shall apply in lieu of the separation of property regime.
