Women did not control her own wealth, so therefore, a woman’s family wealth, was controlled by her father or her husband. Law 128 in the Code of Hammurabi states, “If a man take a wife and do not arrange with her the (proper) contracts, that woman is not a (legal) wife.”1 (Hammurabi 45). A woman would receive a dowry once she was married and left her family. A dowry is a financial gift such as money, property, or goods, which was a gift to her husband once they got married. Once a man married a woman, he then had access to the family’s dowry and the property, money, or goods were then, controlled by him.
People who marry down in class, especially women, often disappoint their parents. Some parents will even disown their children if they do not agree with the child’s choice of a partner. In Mr. Smolinsky’s case, he ridicules his daughters into arranged marriages and even criticizes them after they are married. Even though his daughters’ home situations are terrible because of him, he does not take the blame for his matchmaking but rather turns it around on his children. He brought it upon himself to marry off his children by going to a matchmaker in town.
Couples who have communication issues will lead their marriage into financial ruin. Now to compare single people to married people, who have it better? They both do technically, since some individuals chose to stay exclusive while married people chose to couple up. Between married couples, communication should be kept open, and they should never attempt to persuade their partner into whatever they are not comfortable with. Moreover, they also should not dictate what their partner ensues; how they spend their free time, or even make a curfew for them.

The law of the levirate was a standard male-centered practice in ancient Israel. It also was the only way that Tamar could ensure her dependent status within her late husband’s family and evade the shame of returning home. The WBC explains her predicament precisely, “Even more anomalous is the young childless widow who has no hope of becoming a fruitful member of her husband’s clan once the husband is dead. Indeed, she has altogether lost her tie with that clan.

The main focus of any adoption law should be good care of the child in which is being adopted. If two women adopt a child, the child has no father figure. If two men adopt a child, the child has no mother figure.

(Schumn) The child would not know who to call mommy or daddy if there are two of the same sex parents in the household.
Firstly is the Nayar people of India. The Nayar people conduct pre-puberty marriages between a daughter and a chosen husband. The ritual husband would be from a linked lineage of the family.
