Property of the Family

  • Maung Maung

Abstract

Sharing is the important element in the Burmese family. The husband and the wife share in the toils of earning and of running the home; they share in the fruits of their labours, and where one has brought property in at marriage or after as a gift received, or by succession, for example, the other too acquires a share in the property. In the joint earnings there is even more sharing. This principle of community flows from the status of women and the social custom which acknowledges their role as partners to their men.
