Named after the tribune Gaius Canuleius, who proposed it, it abolished a corresponding[clarification needed] prohibition in the Twelve Tables and allowed marriage between patricians and plebeians, with children inheriting the father's social status. It is also referred to in Latin as the Lex de conubio patrum et plebis.
“So, if Mr Patrician told Miss Plebs that, love you as I do, I cannot marry you; she would reply ‘Oh yes you can, you liar!’”
