Házassági formák és női vagyonjog a magyar társadalomfejlődés korai szakaszában


  • Gabriella Gáspár




In the early Hungarian society, multiple forms of cohabitation and marriage were present, often overlapping each other. Separating these forms can only be done by examining certain elements of matrimonial property laws formed by the customary laws of the time. We can only learn about the property laws during the Era of the Arpad Dynasty from written deeds about how these laws were implemented. This study outlines how the different forms of marriage were related to each other and to the property rights of women. It is inaccurate to believe that women in the Middle Ages were disenfranchised, the various forms of marriage had corresponding property laws. Each law and the frequency of their occurrence in these examined documents is discussed in the conceptual system of legal and social history.
