Institution of law, gender equality, Human rights


Marriage, as an institution of law, is based on the moral and legal equality of spouses, on the feeling of mutual love, respect and understanding, as the basis of family unity. Healthy family and marital relationships contribute to the elimination of gender stereotypes. It all starts in the family and is transmitted throughout society. For this reason, rightly, if we want to know how much a society respects the principles of non-discrimination and gender equality, it is very effective to carry out this analysis also for the family. Both marriage and the family, as very important institutions, enjoy the special protection of the state. The general principles that pervade these institution s are: i) the principle of reciprocity of rights and obligations ii) the principle of equality in rights and obligations iii) putting the interests first: of children, of marriage, of the family iv) reciprocity: in loyalty, for moral help, for material help, for cooperation in the interests of the family and coexistence. Marriage is a legal and social coexistence between two different people whose responsibilities and rights are defined by law and social traditions. Couples marry for a variety of reasons, including love, cohabitation, and sometimes economic or social reasons. Equality between spouses is accepted as a rule social concept and as a principle of family law. The principle of equality and non-discrimination as well as that of violence in marital and family matters is one of the main points in the paper.
