我國民法承襲德國民法個人主義的色彩，對於權益的保護，偏重在個人所享有的財產及人格權益。但整體社會關係的脈絡，並非僅由個人組成，而同時係由最小單元的社會——即家庭——所組成，而現代核心家庭則綜合交錯著夫妻關係、父母子女關係及兄弟\r 姊妹關係。此等身分關係，在身分法的領域中固然是規範的重心；但在侵權行為法中，卻向來不是權益保障的焦點。 一九九九年民法債編修正時，增訂第一九五條第三項，規定於特定身分法益受侵害而情節重大時，賦予被害人請求慰撫金的權利，其影響層面除該條本身承認的身分法益保護之外，同時也直接促成學界對於原來民法第一九二條第二項以及第一九四條的重新定\r 位。目前民法第一九五條第三項目前在實務上已被極頻繁地適用。然此一「身分法益」之內容如何？侵害形態如何界定？與原來民法第一九二條第二項及第一九四條之適用關係與界限為何？身分法益侵害後的損害賠償內容如何？此等問題影響我國侵權行為法的發展方向甚鉅。其背後的影響，不僅僅是「身分權」或「身分法益」受侵害時之慰撫金請求權的明文依據而已，更意味著以個人主義為基礎的侵權行為法，已因應社會現實及其需要，而向部分家庭關係擴張。本文從民法第一九五條第三項的立法背景與實務發展出發，進而探討其發展上之妥當性與未來可能的解釋、發展方向。 Our Civil Code adopted the idea of “individualism” from German civil law. It highlights the protection of personal property and personality. The sequence of the society however is formed not only by the “individual”, but also by “family”. Furthermore, each and every family is a correlation between spouses, parents and children, or siblings. This status is the core concept in the domain of status law; conversely, the protection of this status had never been underlined in tort law. The tort law in the Civil Code was amended in 1999. The new provision of Article 195 Paragraph 3 not only acknowledges the protection of explicit status based on family relationship, but also materializes the academic orientation of the Civil Code Article 192 Paragraph 2 and Article194. At present Article 195 Paragraph 3 of the Civil Code has been broadly applied. Nevertheless, what is the content of the status based on the relationship to one’s father, mother, sons, daughters, or spouse? How to define the scope of impairment? How to characterize the context to Article 192 Paragraph 2 and Article 194? What are the contents of the compensation? All the above questions will significantly influence our tort law. The influence is profound not merely on the statutory basis of the non-property damage of status. It also implies that the basis of tort liability has expanded from “individual” to “family” in part. This study initiates the background and practice on Article 195 Section 3 of the Civil Code and then argues its possibility and validity in future prospect.
