Personal and family relationships

1.- Economic regime of marriage

Marriage not only gives rise to a series of personal effects between the spouses, but also has significant consequences for their assets, known as the 'economic effects of marriage'.

The law establishes a number of standards to regulate these economic effects, some of which are mandatory (and cannot be modified) while others are supplementary, and may be modified as voluntarily decided by the spouses, tailored to their needs in the form of prenuptial agreements. Remember that if you have any doubts, the best course of action is to seek advice from a notary.
