dc.description.abstract The authors of this article provide three reasons why Texas, though already a community property state, should seriously consider adoption of the Uniform Marital Property Act. First, Texas may encourage states that follow common law to consider adopting the fairer and more equitable community property doctrines. Second, uniformity in this area of law is desirable due to the growing mobility of Americans. Third, by considering adoption of this Act, Texas will be able to reevaluate its current community property provisions. Throughout the article, the authors discuss a hypothetical married couple to illustrate the marital property differences between community property states and states that follow the common law.
