If I make art like digital paintings, will my spouse own the original files? What about copies of the originals being sold? Is it possible that whatever I do with my creativity can be owned by my spouse after marriage or not?
It would either be :
- 100% owned by both of you (the Common Estate regime which is what happens if you don’t have a marital contract), or
- 100% by you (or whatever is detailed in your marital contract).
For 1., being 100% owned by both of you is different from owning 50% each. For example, you can’t sell your “share” to a third party without your spouse’s permission.
For 2., if the marriage ends in divorce, part of what the wealthier party owns (up to 1/3) can be claimed by the other party.
