Abstract

Dans cet article, j'analyse la clause de participation dans le contrat matrimonial de la séparation des biens. Cette clause constitue un mécanisme obligatoire d'atténuation important de répondre à l'injustice frappant de la séparation pure et simple des contrats de biens, en particulier en cas de divorce, qui sont très populaires en Belgique. Les quatre facteurs clés pour déterminer les spécificités de cette clause sont: la masse de la participation, la clé de répartition de la participation, le temps de participation (divorce, décès, etc) et les modalités de participation. Tous ces éléments sont présentés en détail dans le document.

In this paper I analyse the participation clause in the marital contract of separation of assets. This clause serves as an important mitigating obligatory mechanism to answer the striking unfairness of the pure and simple separation of assets contracts, especially upon divorce, that are very popular in Belgium. The four key factors for determining the specifics of this clause are: the participation mass, the participation division key, the participation time (divorce, death, etc.) and the participation modalities. All of these are discussed in detail in the paper.
