Abstract:     
In this article I argue the need for a substantial reform of Belgian Inheritance Law, including the possibility for inheritance contracts, reducing the claim of blood relationship and forced heir-ship rules, introducing a distinction between family property and marital gains, awarding a preferred claim to the spouses on those marital gains as the product of their partnership/joint venture, arguing for a legal regime of safe marital transfers between spouses both in regimes of community and separation of property, and also defending the position that inheritance taxes between spouses and children should be abolished.
