Abstract
In the pays coutumier of Northern France and of the Southern Low Countries, the community property system required the judicial intervention of both church and secular courts when one or both spouses asked for a separation. The church courts embedded in this specific society had an eye for the opportunities and the needs of these couples, when facing a marital breakdown. A judicial separation resulted for the husband in the loss of the full management of the marital estate, and for the wife in gaining the legal capacity to recover and administer her 'propres' as 'feme sole', as well as half of the community of goods (movables and land acquired afterward). In a minority of cases the division of the marital property, finalized within the secular courts, turned out to be unacceptable for the husband. In such a case all the characteristics of a nasty separation were present. The article especially focuses on an exemplary case, lasting for more than three decades.
