The final qualification work is devoted to the contractual regime of spouses' property under Russian marriage and family law. The author considers the evolution of marital and family property relations, reveals the ratio of legal and contractual regimes of spouses' property. The conclusion is made about the mixed legal nature of the marriage contract. At the center of the analysis is the content of the prenuptial agreement, the terms of its change and termination. Particular attention is paid to the recognition of a marriage contract as an invalid transaction. The author concludes that in the framework of bankruptcy, a marriage contract can hardly be called an effective means of protecting property rights and interests of spouses.
