    Okay All you Cabo or Mexico brides..
    did you have to fill out a request of marriage form?
    My WC sent me one and the final question on it says

    The contract of Marriage is subset to

    Conjugal Society ( ) Separation of goods ( )

    WHAT THE HECK? I UNDERSTAND THIS IS FOR DIVORCE PURPROSE, IF HEAVEN FOR BID IT HAPPENS.. BUT I THOUGHT YOU ONLY HAD TO THINK ABOUT THAT IF YOU WERE PLANNING A PRENUP.

    DID ANYONE ELSE FILL THIS OUT?

      If you are getting married in Mexico civil law states that you must specify your conjugal property status.

      In Mexico, you have the option to marry under one of two legal regimes: (r©gimen de sociedad conyugal) legal society or (r©gimen de separaci³n de bienes) separation of property.

      Legal society “r©gimen de sociedad conyugal”: Under this regime, both parties equially share both properties and debts through out the marriage.

      Separation of property”r©gimen de separaci³n de bienes”: Under this regime, what's yours is yours and what's your partners is your partners.- applies only to premarriege properties or future inheritances. properties bought during the marrieage are common property unless specifically specified in th etitle. ie- if the title is in both names it is owned by both parties. If the property is in the name of the bride then it is HER property only. It also applies to debts and any outstanding loans.

              Us laws are based on English or Common Law and Mexico law is based on Roman law.

              So there are MANY diffrences. ie: innocent until proven guilty- that does not exist in Mexico. You are assumed guilty until you can prove otherwise.
