Abstract

In this conference paper I argue that English and Belgian marital property and succession law, although conceptually very different, are much more similar from a practical point of view. The paradox is that they seem different at first glance, yet appear more similar in close up view. I conclude that both jurisdictions may learn from each other and would benefit taking over some elements from the other, vice versa.
