About common people’s life styles in the 8th century

・houses
In the 8th century, the style of houses was changing from pit-dwelling style to all-pillared dwelling style. 
 
 
・family
Around the 8th century, when a man married a woman, at first the man would just visit his wife at her house and then when the couple began living together, it would be with either the husband’s parents or the wife's parents.
 
After that, the couple built their own house.
 
Even if a woman married a man, she kept using her parents' family name and she had her own assets. Under the Ritsu-Ryo-code,  it was considered that the paternal line of inheritance was important, because the code was made following the Chinese family system which is patriarchal. 
 
However, among common people, women continued to be the decision-makers in their families, assigning tasks and educating children.
