Abstract

In dit artikel argumenteer ik hoe de rechtbank van eerste aanleg te Antwerpen verkeerdelijk alsofbedingen analyseert en toepast. Ik probeer de essentiële kenmerken van een dergelijke clausule uit te leggen alsook waarom zo'n clausule geldig is onder Belgisch huwelijksvermogensrecht. Het vonnis werd later hervormd door het bekend arrest van 2004 van het Hof van Beroep te Antwerpen.

In this article I argue how the court of first instance in Antwerp erroneously analyzes and applies participation clauses. I try to explain the essential features of such clause and why it is valid under Belgian marital property law. The judgment of the court of first instance has been rejected later on by the Court of Appeal in its famous 2004 judgment.
