      1. Read the text “Marriage law”

In some societies the family is thought to be so important that there is very little intervention in family life. But in many parts of the world, the law now promotes the rights of individuals within the family unit, and regulates family relations through legislation.

In Sweden, parents can be prosecuted for physical punishing their children and children have a limited capacity to divorce their parents. In Britain, as in many countries, there are special family courts with very strong powers to control and transfer private property in the interests of children. Much of the work of other courts is also directly relevant to family life.

The laws in many countries place more emphasis upon marriages legally registered than social arrangement whereby people live together. In Japan, some couples prefer not to register their marriage because the law requires one of them to give up his or her name in favor of the other. The birth and residence documentation of children born to such marriages is different from that of other children and sometimes leads to discrimination. In Britain, children born outside legitimate marriages have fewer rights to financial support from estranged fathers than legitimate children. In addition, if they are born outside the UK, they are less likely than legitimate children to be granted British citizenship. Some well-fare payments are calculated on a different basis according to whether recipients are married or not, and more procedures are available to a married woman than an unmarried one in seeking protection from domestic violence.

In English law, some marriages are readily dissolved, or nullified. In other cases, the couple may seek the divorce. The procedure may be lengthy, especially if one does not want a divorce or if there are children. In no case will English law allow divorce proceedings to start within a year of the marriage.

Divorce proceedings in England take place in certain County Courts known as divorce county courts. Some matters are also dealt with in the Family Division of the High Court. It is necessary for one of the parties to convince the court that the marriage has broken down without any chance of reconciliation. To do so the person seeking for divorce must prove one of the five things: that the other party, or respondent, committed adultery; that the respondent’s behavior has been unreasonable; that the respondent deserted the petitioner at least two years previously; that the couple has lived apart for two years and both agree to divorce; or that they have lived apart for five years. A divorce will not be issued until it is determined who is to have custody of the children.[76]
