Original Latin


Haeredes maritentur absque disparagatione, ita tamen quod, antequam contrahatur matrimonium, ostendatur propinquis de consanguinitate ipsius haeredis.


Heirs are to be married without disparagement, provided that before the marriage is agreed upon the heir’s near kin are informed.
