We were only for the wedding in Mauritius (2 weeks). We married under the wedding-lo
law of Mauritius. Both of us were borne in Switzerland and we are still living in Switzerland. We are both Swiss citizens.
Thanks for clarifying your situation.
Earnings are not part of the goods that need to be to share. Each partner keeps his own earnings. This is particularly your case, since you have signed a separation of goods and earnings after your marriage.
The only thing you might have to share - if you have not just done it within the content of the agreement - are the goods that you have in both spouses' names and - strangely enough - the gifts that you have received as a married couple.
I hope this answers your question. If it does, please do not hesitate do rate and accept my answer so that I can be compensated from the website for my job with the money you have already deposited.
A bonus would also be very much appreciated.
Of course, I remain at your disposal should you need any further information.
We married under Maritius -law but we are living in Switzerland! Do you think our wedding-documents from Mauritius are valid also in Switzerland?
You're most welcome!
Yes your marriage is valid even if you got married under Mauritius law.
Nonetheless, under private international law, the patrimonial/economical effects that derive from your marriage are ruled by the law of the country where the couple has mainly reside. In your case, then, Swiss law.
I hope this answers your question. PLEASE, do not hesitate to rate and accept my answer otherwise I do not get compensation for my job from the website with the amount you have already deposited.
