|Spanish term or phrase: Mexican marriage contract: sociedad legal|
|Estoy traduciendo un contrato de matrimonio mexicano y al final dice:|
Este contrato está sujeto al régimen de
___ sociedad conyugal (Creo que esto es "joint ownership of property by husband and wife")
_X_ sociedad legal (? - HELP NEEDED HERE)
___ separación de bienes (? - HELP NEEDED HERE, TOO)
Si alguien sabe lo que quiere decir cualquiera de estos términos y puede ayudarme, sería de gran ayuda--aunque no sepa los equivalentes en inglés. Gracias de antemano.
|la primera es "joint ownership" y la última "separation of|
property" (In U.S. law these are the two main categories).
Problem: sociedad legal - is this the same as the Spanish sociedad de bienes gananciales? If so, this refers to the property earned by the couple and held in common AFTER THE MARRIAGE, considering the marriage a business partnership. Under U.S. law, that belongs to the 1st category. British law accepts a mixed arrangement (conjugal estate coexists with individual estate), and in both countries there are always additional clauses.

|Thanks for the helpful answer. What you knew is what I also knew, and what I didn't know is what you didn't know either. However, you articulated the question better than I did! Since there's not an exact equivalent under Texas law, I opted to call Sociedad legal a legal partnership. |
