This Comment examines the recent amendments to the California Civil Code, which require that, at divorce, that the community be reimbursed for the costs of an education of training acquired during marriage. The author examines these new code provisions in relation to prior California case law, contrasts these provisions with responses taken by other states with respect to this issue, and examines the legislative history surrounding the passage of these provisions. The author then discusses the practical implications of the amendments, and examines the interrelationship of this reimbursement remedy with the California community property system.
