However, sometimes there are questions, what is this concept?
According to representations of ancestors, bloodinherited on his father's side, t. e. is transmitted during fetal development from dad to son or daughter. As a result, children born of different women from the same men considered consanguine relatives. Despite the recent advances of genetics and awareness of the fact that any evidence is inherited from both parents, and as a result of genetic modification may occur and novel features of the concept of half-brother and remained in use and applies it to the children born of the same father.
Half-brother - these are relatives,whose internal development took place in the same womb. Thus, children of the same women are half brother and sisters. However, even the sons born to one woman from different fathers, uterine considered.

During the heyday of the Roman Empireit was believed that more than half-brothers relatives to each other people than the uterine. The reason is simple enough: in those days, Rome was dominated by patriarchy, so, of course, the man was at a premium and deserves more respect than a woman. If for some reason it came to the division of the inheritance, and at the same time there was a dispute between the half-brothers - claims considered. Dissatisfaction half brother was not taken into account.
In Athens, it was considered possible marriages between half-brothers and a sister. While the marriage of uterine relatives was prohibited by law.
Abraham, the hero of the Hebrew Bible, married his half-sister.

In many countries, such as France and Austria, blood brothers by dividing the inheritance shall be entitled to a portion in the two times higher than normal, or half-'s half.
In the Russian legislation there is a law governing the inheritance of consanguineous and uterine children.
