– I do not know if they should be green, red and thin shots
Synthesis of newspapers
The drama drama "Knowing whether it should be green, red and thin" ended with the whole drama, but the scene of family life in the drama left a deep impression on the audience – all went up and down, and several generations or families lived together. There are dozens of people who say less, compared to our modern life, he really is a thriving man. Gu Tingfu Gu Ershu in the play, because he and his stepmother did not want to stand alone, was condemned by the whole family. Then how is the ancient family population defined and how are the independent portals separated?
Spring and Fall of the Han Dynasty: Five to eight is the normal state
The structure of the family of China from ancient times is a family of three or five people and more than a few, usually a family of eight, therefore, after "fatherly godliness", there are often "brother and brother" followed by, two brothers of a mother who has been a common kinship for thousands of years.
"Mencius Liang Hui Wang Zhang sentence of the eighth section" describes the marital status of pre-Qin: "the area of a hundred acres, do not take time, the family of eight can not be hunger." Han, food and food On the population of the warring states he said, "This is a husband of five people, a hundred acres of healing land," which shows that Wei Wenzhou in the early Warring States is usually a five-member family. In other words, the composition of the family during the spring and autumn periods and the period of the warring states should be between 5 and 8 people. Five, usually parents plus three children, eight are grandparents plus parents and three children.
When I came to the Han Dynasty and described the people's livelihood in Han, food and food, it became clear that the people of the Han Dynasty were mostly a family of five: "The five-member family now has no less than two servicemen. "
Qing: Prescribed elderly men
Break up the family
From this record, it can be seen that the number of family members has decreased during the spring and autumn periods to the Qing and Han dynasties.
This is mainly due to the imperial judicial policy. The Reform Law "Shang Yang" states that "there are two people who do not differ from each other and are not separated." The goal of this is nothing more than calculating the taxation of households and people.
Gai Yi, a famous political commentator in the Han Dynasty, said the division of the Shan and Shan dynasties had added a rule: "People of Qin have children, the family is rich and the family is good and the family is poor." Considering the scorpion's color, the mother takes the bowl and the jargon, and the jargon is considered "This means that there are not two elderly men in the family." When the rich son grows, he goes out and goes out.When the poor family grows they take the initiative to go to the homes of other people to become a son-in-law and then separate from mother-in-law.To separate the family, it is necessary to clarify the property of each family, it is not allowed to have an economic exchange between the aunt and the new family, if they use vast land, they are with they read about the misappropriation of foreign property and are subject to criticism and insult.
Older men are separated, so the family is hard to exceed five people.
The Han Dynasty basically follows the consistent policy of the Qing and Tsing Dynasties, although the court advocated a sinister piety to rule the world, all were accustomed to sharing the family and did not want to live with their aunts of generations. Therefore, the court is not compelled, but for those who do not live together, how many generations live together and family relations are handled well, the government will also encourage and will definitely be entitled to the annual harmonious family reward.
