Abstract:     
Dans cet article, je propose quels critères devraient régir un régime matrimonial légal, à savoir le système de propriété qui est mis en place au moment du mariage lorsque les conjoints n'ont pas fait un contrat de pré-mariage ou un contrat de marriage. Ces critères sont la transparence, l'équité et mainstream. En appliquant ces critères, je suggère quatre directives pour une forme adéquate de systèmes matrimoniaux: 1. Le droit à une participation dans la propriété, 2. Masse de participation limitée aux gains acquis pendant le mariage ou la relation; 3. Clé de participation égale et corrections si inéquitable; 4. Système communautaire avec des effets internes. Puis, je donne une analyse technique pourquoi et comment ces biens de la communauté pourrait être préféré sur les demandes de participation ou des biens de la communauté traditionnelle avec des effets externes envers des tiers et des créanciers.

In this article I argue what criteria should govern a legal marital property regime, i.e. the property system that is put in place upon marriage when spouses have not made a prenuptial agreement or marital contract. These criteria are transparency, mainstream and fairness. Applying these criteria I suggest four guidelines for an adequate marital property systems: 1. Entitlement to some participation in the property; 2. Participation mass limited to gains acquired during the marriage or relationship; 3. Equal participation key with corrections if inequitable; 4. Community system with internal effects only. I then give a technical analysis why and how such community property might be preferred over participation claims or the traditional community property with external effects towards third parties and creditors.
