Family Law: Should we divide our 2nd pillar in case of a separation?

Are you separated and therefore not divorced? What will happen to the second pillar in that case? 

Separation is a less radical measure than divorce. It is usually a period that couples in crisis use, resulting in either reconciliation or divorce. 

Life together is suspended, but spousal obligations are not. 

A separated couple remains married. There is therefore an obligation to maintain the other. The LPP, or 2nd pillar, will hence not be shared and remains common to the couple.

If there is a divorce, the 2nd pillar will in principle be divided equally, regardless of the couple’s marital regime.
