Article 164 of the Swiss Civil Code: Allowance for Personal Use

This article provides that a spouse who looks after the household, cares for the children, or supports the career or business of the other spouse is entitled to receive from the latter a reasonable allowance for his or her own personal use. In determining the allowance, “account must be taken of the personal resources of the receiving spouse and the need to provide conscientiously for the family, career and business.” Unofficial English translation available here.
