The Agnatic Family of the Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

The agnatic family was the model of the Roman nuclear family, and it integrated within itself the agnates, people who lived in the same domus, who considered each other as the closest relatives because they descended or were subject to a common paterfamilias.

Although the Romans also had an extended family, such as the gens, most of their family relationships developed around the agnatic family, and it can be said that it was the only one that aroused an emotional bond.

The agnatic ties are the main connection between the agnates, and the most direct agnatic family─that of the domus─can be distinguished from a less direct agnatic family, made up of uncles, cousins ​​or nephews between the second and fourth degree of agnation.

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.
