Abstract:The legislative value orientation of marriage and family law is closely related to social types and social structures. It develops with the evolution of social types, the differentiation of social structure and the diversity of culture. From the perspective of social types, the legislative value orientation of marriage and family law tends to be more open, more contracts and rights featured with the development of the society, which is in essence a process of legal recognition of personal value. From the perspective of social structure, the legislative value orientation of marriage and family law differs with stratification, culture and social governance model. The correlation between the legislative value orientation of marriage and family law and social types, as well as social structures, can explain the current situation of marriage and family law and reveal the trend of its development, and thus, in turn, improve the social compatibility of relevant regulations.
