Abstract

Researchers have been developing a sophisticated humanoid robot that people in the future may want to marry. A human-robot marriage would pose challenges to lawmakers, including whether robots could be granted custody of children or access to family bank accounts. Any intimate relationship between humans and robots, however, may pose challenges to the current understanding of family law. For skeptics of such a future, it remains an interesting thought experiment, nonetheless.

Keywords: family law, domestic relations, marriage, robot
