    Assuming we are going by the traditonal definition of "ancient Rome", which covers the time of the Republic, and the rise and decay of the Empire, during those periods citizens weren't allowed to marry slaves.

    As far as I know, children born to a slave woman were considered slaves, regardless of who the father was. But I'm no expert, so I defer to anyone who is more knowledgeable of the subject.

    He would be laughed at if he married her--assuming this was before 500 AD,
