ZHAO Yonglun;People's Armed College, Guizhou University;
Marriage in ancient nomadic countries and farming countries is the same tribal marriage regardless of its form. Except few ethnic groups such as Goths and Wuhuan, women in nomadic countries have no property rights. However, in ancient farming countries, the property inheritance rights of women were divided into two categories: one was that women barely had property rights, such as in China and Athens; the other was that property rights of women experienced such a change: from the stage where women had no access to property, to where the property rights were enjoyed by women, and finally taken away from them, such as in Sparta and Rome. The status of women in the family is extremely low, both in the nomadic and the farming countries, with women in nomadic countries seemed to have a higher status in the family than their counterparts in farming countries.
