Kinship in Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

Kinship is the family bond that establishes long-standing affective, mutual correspondence relationships, between groups of people descending from a common ancestor, which produces legal effects.

These familial relationships are ruled both (a) by Roman civil law, ius civile, when they rely on the civil authority of the paterfamilias, or (b) by natural law, ius naturale, when they rely on consanguinity.

Most of the legal relationships between Roman citizens and the Roman civil society corresponded with a form of kinship, for example, family legal roles correspond to the agnatic kinship, patronage correspond to the clanship kinship─gens, etc.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
