Some Thoughts on Recent Family Policies Designed to Prevent Divorce in the United States of America: With Special Regard to the Marriage License and the Covenant Marriage
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 19, issue 2, 2001, Pages 13~21
The purpose of this study is to examine the Marriage Preparation and Preservation Act adopted in Florida which require premarital counseling and covenant marriage laws of Louisiana and Arizona among many kinds of family policy which recently are designed to prevent divorce in the United States of America. Most of states in the U.S. require the marriage license prior to having a marriage ceremony. Covenant marriage legislation has admirable motives to strengthen marriage and cure the defects of the no-fault system. In that legislation, the imposition of waiting period for the no-fault ground of divorce, proof of fault requirements, consent requirements, and mandatory course or counseling attendance will likely serve as deterrents to those seeking divorce as a first resort. To sum up, by offering preventive measures in the form of premarital counseling and waiting period before marriage, covenant marriage will force couples entering marriage to carefully consider their actions before they act and prevent broken marriages in the first place. In response to rising divorce rates, the Koreas family policy has put its emphasis of fixing social problems accompanied with family dissolution. Rather, this study suggests that attention in Korea also should be shifted from broken marriages to preventing them.

Jubu, Politics of Gender, and National Development in South Korea
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 19, issue 2, 2001, Pages 47~66
Today in modern Korea, the preferred modern social role for many modern women is that of modern housewife. This move to the role of housewife is a change in more than just a role; it also reflects a deep and fundamental change that has taken place in the social and economic roles of married women. This shift in economic activities and the gender roles they help produce speaks of a deep and profound process of transformation for all of Korea. Traditionally, a woman was a member of a family premised upon group production as well as group consumption. The role of jubu is derived almost exclusively from market forces and bases her identity and actions upon those forces. This distinction is crucial because it means Korean women are finding that they are no longer as central to the existence of the family. Modern life situations have altered a womans role by making consumption, not production by the woman herself, the keystone of modern families.

The major conclusions that are derived from the study are as follows: First, intellectuals during enlightenment period of Korea, criticizing concubinage, tired to establish the monogamous relationship and they argued that it should be the prior condition for Korea to enter into the civilized society. Second, the concubinage was criticized in the point of the newly established view. The criticism was on double sex ethics, applying different ethical standards to men and women and the prohibition of wifes jealousy of concubine. Third, intellectuals during enlightenment period of Korea were tried to do away with concubinage by enforcing the discrimination between wife and concubine. But the efforts resulted in making concubinage personal problems.
