matrimonial home

matrimonial home

the residence in which a husband and wife have lived together. In the UK legislation exists to protect spouses who are not the owner of the matrimonial home or who own it with their spouse, from the unimpeded exercise of the property rights of the property-owning spouse. Protection varies between the jurisdictions but may include exclusion of the property owning spouse and the requirement for the potential interest to be taken account of in property transactions.
