Dissolution of marriage

We speak of marriage dissolution when it occurs:

  • divorce in the case of a marriage celebrated with a civil ceremony (ie before the mayor, not in church, with the concordat rite).
  • the death of one of the spouses

In the event of the death of one of the two spouses, in reality, the marriage bond is dissolved, but some effects continue to persist.

In fact, the surviving spouse retains a series of rights and obligations, such as the right to become an heir, to acquire a survivor’s
pension, the temporary ban on getting married again, and many other things.

Another hypothesis of dissolution is in the case of a
declaration of presumed death: it is equivalent to death, but if the presumed death was not, in reality, the marriage contracted as a
result of this “, it will consequently be null and void.
