Transcript taking up work outside. We also met numerous trade union couples with children, both husband and wife being active trade union and party workers—sometimes away from one another for months on public work, but their love and interest in their children, and their love for one another had not, so far as we could see, suffered in any way. Just as here in England there is many a family in which husband and wife both work, both take an interest in public life, both have most of their meals out, and yet we do not say that as a result their family life, in the best sense of the term, is being broken up. What is true is that, the social side of life is being emphasised by the encouragement of public dining rooms, club life (both for educational purposes and recreation) and by the training of the children, both girls and boys. Marriage and Divorce A girl has the right to marry at sixteen, and a boy at the age of eighteen. As in this country, marriage is prohibited between near relations, such as brothers and half-brothers, and sisters, between mother and son, and so on, but not between uncle and niece, or nephew and aunt. Marriage in church, although permitted, is not recognised as legal by itself. All marriages have to be registered with the civil authorities. A marriage can only take place with the consent of both parties. Bigamous marriages are prohibited. The woman being looked upon as the equal of the man, does not on marriage lose her identity in that of the husband. In the first place the wedded name of the couple may be that of the husband or wife, or each may continue to use their own name, just as they desire. Their decision on this point is registered. Secondly, the woman on marriage does not necessarily become a subject of her husband's country. A Soviet woman marrying a foreigner remains a Soviet citizen. A woman of another nationality, say, British, marrying a Soviet citizen, remains, according to Soviet law, a British citizen, and may only adopt Soviet citizenship in accordance with the ordinary rules and regulations for the naturalisation of foreigners in the Soviet Union. Further, the husband cannot force the wife to follow him if he removes to a new place of residence. In this, as in every other respect, the wife is recognised as a human being with equal political, economic, and general rights. Marriage does not necessarily carry with it community of property between husband and wife. After marriage each may continue to possess property, carry on business, &c, independently of the other. Household effects and other property accumulated in common during marriage is divided, on divorce, either equally or in proportions as determined by a court of law. During illness, unemployment, or incapacitation of husband or wife, the one in a position to do so must support the other. If one or the other is under eighteen, or in the case of a man over fifty-five, and in case of a woman over fifty, and has no other means of support, then the one in a position to do so must support the other. Even if divorce takes place during this time, the support of husband to wife, or vice versa, continues until such time as there is no further need for it. As marriage under Soviet law is looked upon purely as a civil contract, the only basis of which is the love and desire for one another of the man (45)
