The union is the marriage. 'Contrat de mariage préalable' sounds like a marriage, but I think that's what means pre-nup.
Change of matrimonial regime
Most British married couples automatically fall under the regime known as separation of property (séparation des biens). Under this system, any asset registered in one spouse’s name is considered to be owned by that spouse. Any assets registered in joint names are considered to be owned equally. It means that on the death of one spouse, the protected heirs can make a valid claim against all assets registered in the name of the deceased spouse and 50 per cent of the assets registered in joint names.
