Abstract:     
In this paper I comment on the Antwerp Court of Appeal judgment on marital advantages in community property regimes (after the 2004 judgment in separation of property regimes), approving the consistent theory that the Court is developing. I also argue that all transfers between spouses through the marital contract or regime are marital advantages. Some of them are perfect or full advantages, immune for the forced heirship rules. Others, going beyond the "cap" of articles 1464 and 1465 of the Belgian Civil Code are imperfect advantages, that must be accounted on the fictive hereditary mass and that may be reduced because of forced heirship protection.
