Matrimonial property regimes
Example: a French couple married without singing a marriage contract on July 1st, 1993 and settled down in France after the marriage. This married couple follows the French statutory matrimonial property regime.
This couple then moved to Germany in 2003. Hence, the couple will automatically be placed under the German statutory matrimonial property regime starting 2013.
Consequently, this couple's property will be placed under two different matrimonial regimes.
