married in community of property
Explanation:
This has been asked many times before and is in the glossaries. I don't think regime or system is necessary here.

In the Oxford dictionary of law it states that this is the sharing of ownership of matrimonial property, such as the home and furniture, as an automatic consequence of marriage.

WHAT YOU SHOULD THINK ABOUT SIGNING
BEFORE YOU SIGN THE REGISTER

A Guide to Premarital or Antenuptial Contracts

Matrimonial property systems
Before getting married, you and your partner need to decide how you will share the things you own and the debts in your marriage.

In community of property
If you don\'t sign a contract before you are married, you will automatically be married in community of property. This means that everything you own and owe is shared equally, the assets as well as the debts.

Out of community of property
By signing an antenuptial contract, you can choose to be married out of com-munity of property. This means that each spouse\'s property remains their own and that the things that they do not buy jointly during the marriage will belong to only one of them.

If you want to translated régimen (although I still don\'t think it\'s necessary with \"casado\"), regime seems to be used:

... family law is becoming increasingly a European issue, and problems are already being
generated by the absence of a regime of community of property in England ...

The intended spouses can choose one of three matrimonial regimes: the regime of partnership of acquests, separation as to property, and community of property. A couple can even create its own regime by stipulating, for instance, that only part of the property will be considered acquests while the remaining property will be subject to the rules governing separation as to property, as long as the contract is in keeping with the provisions of the Civil Code of Québec.

sorry, this is getting longer and longer: system seems to be used by .uk sources too!

Matrimonial Property Rules
Most European regimes have a system of community of property applicable to the assets acquired by spouses both before and during their marriage.

It is important for expatriates to determine the applicability (if any) of the relevant foreign matrimonial property legislation. Consideration can be given in certain cases to the preparation of a designation of the applicable legal regime.

2.4 Whilst neither England nor Scotland has a system of community of property, Scotland has something akin with \"legal rights\" of spouse and issue to shares of the deceased\'s moveable estate (roughly equivalent to personal estate in England). Legal rights over heritable estate were abolished in 1964.

Thanks, Nikki, that is as comprehensive answer as one could hope to get. However, just one point - I searched it on my KudoZ.Net tool under ProZ glossaries and got a nil result!
