These conditions are found in clause 1466 of the Commercial and Civil Code of Thailand. In accordance with Thailand`s marriage laws, the marriage contract mainly refers to the assets and financial implications of the marriage and defines the conditions for the ownership and management of personal and concrete common property and a possible division of matrimonial property when the marriage is dissolved. The marriage contract also includes a list of each party`s personal property at the time of the marriage and ensures that debts and assets remain in the possession of the original owner or debtor before the marriage. Personal property includes: See the full definition of marriage contracts in the Dictionary of English Language Learners Marriage contracts in Canada are subject to provincial legislation. Every province and territory in Canada recognizes marriage contracts. For example, in Ontario, marriage contracts are called prenutial agreements and recognized by section 52 of the Family Law Act. [18] Split debt: Prenutial agreements can limit your responsibilities to the extent that your spouse is at the time of divorce and during the marital debt. Figuring out how to manage debt and who is responsible for that debt can save time and money if the end of the marriage involves extensive litigation. In practice, marriages can violate canon law in several ways. For example, they cannot encourage a marriage to a condition that affects the future.

The Code of Canon Law states: “A marriage linked to a condition of the future cannot be effectively concluded”. (CIC 1102) In India, marriage contracts are very rare and have no applicable laws. However, with rising divorce rates, people are showing a growing interest in them. Some lawyers believe that prenups in India have no legal sanctity. However, in some cases, some form of contract is signed, usually among affluent citizens. But agreements must be reasonable and not violate existing laws such as the Hindu Marriage Act. Indian courts allow the signing of a settlement protocol during divorces. But no court has yet been asked to impose a prenup. [6] When drafting an agreement, it is important to recognize that there are two types of state laws that govern divorce: equitable distribution practiced by 41 states and common property, practiced in some variants of 9 states. A written agreement in a State of common ownership should not be designed in such a way as to regulate what happens in a State of equitable distribution and vice versa. It may be necessary to hire lawyers in both States to cover the possible case where the parties live in a State other than the State in which they married.

Often, people have more than one home in different states or they move a lot because of their work, so it`s important to consider this when building. Marriage contracts have long been recognized as valid in several European countries such as France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. While in some of these countries, there are limits to restrictions that courts consider enforceable or valid (e.B. Germany after 2001, where the courts of appeal have indicated this), a written and duly initiated contract that has been freely agreed cannot be challenged, for example by arguing the circumstances in which the marriage failed or the conduct of one of the two parties. . . .
