Among the civil registration statistics released by IBGE, the growth of the alternative “partial separation of assets” in divorces draws attention. It reached 77.4% of the total in Santa Catarina in 2022, but since 2009 divorces with universal community of property have fallen by half while those with partial community property have risen by 13.8 percentage points.

Two reasons contribute to this result. One is that more people are choosing to share only the wealth accumulated during their marriage.

The other is that this partial regime has become the national standard. So, when the spouses do not indicate another regime in the marriage or stable union, this is the one that will prevail if the couple decides to divorce.

In this regime, the wealth accumulated together or the debts made during this period are divided. It means that, if the couple has debt upon separation, this must also be divided between the two.

Average below national

Although the Santa Catarina average of 77.4% of partial sharing of property in marriage seems high, it is below the national average. In that same 2022 survey, IBGE found that in Brazil, the average number of divorces with partial separation of assets reached 90.1%.

These data show that more couples in Santa Catarina than in Brazil got together in recent years with the conviction that they would stay together for life. Although this average of universal sharing of goods is also declining.

According to IBGE, in 2022, SC recorded 15,946 divorces, 0.5% more than in the previous year. The number of marriages in the State reached 35,621 in the same year, which meant an increase of 11.2% compared to the previous year and a variation more than double the national rate, which grew 4% in the same period.

Santa Catarina also saw a 29.7% increase in the number of same-sex marriages in 2022 compared to 2021, reaching 524 unions, 1.5% of the total in the State.
