Abstract

In this brief paper, I summarize my key arguments against the continental tradition of upholding marital contracts of pure and simple separation of assets without any corrective or mitigating mechanisms. I argue that such contract should not be enforceable and that automatic mitigation should be applied. Both married partners as cohabitants in a durable relationship should share (trough participation claims) the gains (from labor or equivalent income) that have been accumulated during the relationship.
