Marriage


R.S. v. P.R. | 2019 SCC 49 | Supreme Court of Canada


[M]arriage in Quebec family law is an "egalitarian economic union with a number of patrimonial consequences" ([Quebec (Attorney General) v. A, [2013] 1 S.C.R. 61], at para. 78), a "joint endeavour" (Moge v. Moge, [1992] 3 S.C.R. 813, at p. 870), and a "socio-economic partnership" (Bracklow v. Bracklow, [1999] 1 S.C.R. 420, at para. 49) -- regardless of the chosen matrimonial regime (Quebec v. A, at para 80).
