Under California Family Code 1100(c), equal management does not apply to community furniture, household furnishings, clothing of the other spouse, clothing of the children, or the fittings of the family dwelling. Transactions involving these items must be in writing. Any nonconsent sales are void ab initio and not merely voidable. A buyer deals at her peril in purchasing household goods. The aggrieved spouse need not make restitution from the funds received for the goods sold or pledged. If both spouses are present and deal with the buyer written consent would not be needed.
