In this article the author makes an analysis of the Proposal for a Council Regulation implementing enhanced cooperation on jurisdiction, applicable law and the recognition and enforcement of decisions in matters of matrimonial property regimes. Such proposal is better structured and of a higher quality than the similar proposal dating from 2011. With regard to the scope of the law applicable to matrimonial property regimes and succession matters, as well as the personal effects of marriage, uncertainties remain. The Regulation provides for a comprehensive set of jurisdiction rules. The rules with regard to the applicable law, however, give rise to numerous questions and changes should be made in the future. Overall the author evaluates the proposal as outstanding.
