Comparative socio-legal study of the civil partnership in Ecuador and Peru [Estudio socio-jurídico comparado de la unión de hecho en Ecuador y Perú]

Vélez C., Manuel

The present work presents a comparative study between the Ecuadorian legislation and that of Peru with regard to the equality of rights of people who have a legal bond of de facto union and those based on marriage. Thus, in five sections, I will expose: 1) the theoretical foundations of the de facto union, 2) the Ecuadorian and Peruvian legal framework of the de facto union, 3) the legislation compared between these two countries, 4) the results of the perception in Ecuador and 5) the differences and similarities between the legislation compared on the de facto union. One of the main results of this study is that, although in Peruvian law, the rights and obligations of the de facto union are determined in Article 5 of the Political Constitution and Art. 326 of the Civil Code, which does not recognize concubines the ordinary administration of the society of property or property, the obligations between cohabitants and the voluntary substitution of the patrimony, which in turn are established in the Civil Code (Articles 222-232) and in the Constitution of the Republic of Ecuador (Art. 68), given the exclusion of these rights and obligations of the Peruvian legal system
