Family life has changed dramatically since the 1960s. In our modern pluralistic society almost everybody knows some friends w ho represent examples for different forms and sets of family values which co-exist alongside each other. Boele-Woelki and Sverdrup (2008) argue convin- cingly that family law is experiencing in the la st three or four decades profound and deep social and demographic changes. The knowledge about and insight into these changes is a conditio sine qua non for the legal comparatist as well as the legal translator. The aim of this study is to underpin the necessary comparison of two legal systems as a prerequisite for an adequate legal translation.
