Vietnam’s marriage law introduced in Republic of Korea
Posted: Sep 03,2010

A book on Vietnam’s Marriage and Family Law was introduced in Seoul, the Republic of Korea (RoK), on August 13.

The book, published in both the Vietnamese and Korean languages, was translated from Vietnamese into Korean language by Professor Ahn Hee-wan, Director of the Vietnamese Economic Research Institute, and edited by Professor Bae Yang-soo from the Pusan University of Foreign Studies.

At the book launching, representatives from the Vietnamese Embassy in the RoK, the Korean marriage matchmakers association (KMMA) and the multi-cultural family support centre observed one minute of silence to commemorate 20-year-old Vietnamese bride Thach Thi Hong Ngoc who was killed by her mentally ill Korean husband in Pusan city not long ago.

Representatives of KMMA and its affiliates vowed to abide by both the RoK and Vietnamese laws and ensure there will be no similar cases in the future.

Prof. Ahn began to collect materials and translate the book in late 2008 under the auspices of Park Soo-kwan, Vietnam’s honorary General Consul in Pusan and Keangnam, and Koo Cha-yol, Vietnam’s honorary consul in Incheon and Kiengki.

KMMA representatives said they will work with relevant agencies to popularise the book among families in Tegu and Pusan that have Vietnamese brides and among RoK men who plan to marry Vietnamese girls.

KMMA is the only international marriage matchmaker licensed by the RoK Government.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
