Of the Impediment of the Condition of Slavery
We must now consider the impediment of the condition of slavery. Under this head there are four points of inquiry:
- Whether the condition of slavery is an impediment to matrimony?
- Whether a slave can marry without his master's consent?
- Whether a man who is already married can make himself a slave without his wife's consent?
- Whether the children should follow the condition of their father or of their mother?
