The article deals with the influence of the church, customary and secular law on marriage and family relations, as revealed by the specifics of these relations. The author investigates the influence of the Church on the family relationships of the laity from the Southern Ukrainian lands in the 18th century. The empire had a significant impact on marriage and family relations. The intervention of secular power in this sphere of relations is shown. Since the beginning of the 18th century, the main source of family law was not only Nomocanon, but also the decisions of the Synod and the decrees of the emperor, which corrected canon law.
