Example text

These last three could own nothing independently of the pater familias, and the advanced age of the son would not distinguish him, in this respect, from the newborn great-grandson. Further, all these descendants were alike in being subject to the “paternal power,” the patria potestas, of the pater familias (see Chapter III). It is well to pause for a moment and absorb the full implications of this household structure. What social causes might have led to its creation in this form? 3. Daughters and Wives.

Sabinus, Cassius, and the rest of our teachers think that a male reaches puberty when he displays this physically, that is, when he is able to procreate. But for those persons, like eunuchs (spadones), who cannot undergo puberty, the age at which they become adults should be used. By contrast, the authors of the other (Proculian) school think that puberty should be reckoned in years; that is, they judge that a male reaches puberty if he has completed fourteen years. . 1. Guardianship. Through the premature death of a father, a person can become sui iuris even though he or she is still far too young to be capable of adult decision making.

We usually think of a “family” as primarily established by kinship and coresidence; thus, a “nuclear family” consists of parents and their children residing in the same house. The Roman familia is also influenced by kinship and coresidence, but its framework is much more emphatically determined by a nexus of legal relationships, which are explored in the materials within this Casebook. Especially important among these legal relationships are the marriage bond between husband and wife and the power that the male head of a household (the pater familias) exercises over household property and over his descendants.
