In several European languages such as italian, spanish, and french latin still remains extremely influential. English has also used latin, in fact we still use the latin alphabet even though the latin alphabet has 23 letters and the english alphabet has 26. They also named several months from latin such as August, October, November, and December.

the Roman law would cover marriages, inheritances, and contracts/agreements among people. Still today, people can get married in a court house which is a contract. But you could also get divorced which would be ending that contract.
