This paper analyzes the legalization agreement in the Spanish Law with the purpose of confronting some of its aspects with the Chilean Civil Marriage Law Project. The analysis of the Spanish Law presents interesting discussions dealing with the nature of the legalization agreement prior to its ratification, the nature of the verdict that ratifies it, the effects of the legalization agreement with respect to others, and a series of guidelines in relation with the married couple and the children. The intervention of a judge is restricted concerning the couple but not in the case of the children. After concluding this paper it is clear that the Civil Marriage Law Project is too paternal and has little respect for the decisions of the couple, in addition it bestows an application limit to the agreement, which is much more restrictive than the Spanish Law.
