Instead punishment is in the form of forced labor.

 

A panel of judges chosen from a city judge oversees the trials, and must have an unanimous verdict where either guilt or innocence is overwhelmingly certain. A case of guilty made be appealed to a district court or national court. 

 

Divorce Law

While divorce is discouraged except without a good reason (like with infidelity) it is not illegal. It may be initiated by either the man or the woman. If a man divorces his wife without giving a good reason then he must leave the household possestions to that wife and children. He is in essense severing all family ties with that household. If a woman divorces his husband without a good reqason ,then she must give half of her possestions, to be divided among the man's other wives and households.

 

Inheritance

As with most cultures, the first born inherits most of the possessions of his household, receiving half and the renaming male heirs dividing the other half. If a wedded woman dies both the objects in her household and her children are "inherited" by another wife of the man.
