Abstract

In this article, the question is raised why upon the introduction of same sex marriage no one has raised the issue whether one should take for granted the automatic application of the legal marital property law that was made for heterosexual couples. The argument goes that in the heat of the emancipation fight, there is no room for subtleties of this nature. However, after obtaining the equal position in marriage, one should take up the issue whether the typical mainstream legal regime, in continental systems a community of gains, is a misfit for homosexual couples. Would a separation of property with a participation right at the end of the marriage be more suitable?
