Abstract:     
This article presents the marital property regime of separation of assets with equalization of accrued gains, suggesting a direction for necessary reform that could increase the regime’s popularity in Poland. This article also endeavors to address the usefulness of the marital property regime for families in both the European Union, where efforts to harmonize marital property law were recently undertaken, and in other countries such as the United States, which shares to some extent the concept of the regime but may also be interested in alternatives to its two current regimes, particularly given that American couples themselves are free to agree to their own property arrangements by virtue of a premarital or marital agreement.
