Subsistence type and marriage type will affect the attitude towards women's premarital relationships; this relationship will differ between societies where arranged marriages are prevalent and societies where it is not (p.195-6)."
Results found that premarital relationships were expected or tolerated in about 44% of societies, and strongly disapproved of in about 27% of societies. In 23% of arranged marriage societies, premarital relationships were expected or tolerated, and strongly disapproved of in about 47%. "There was only one significant odds ratio which indicated that arranged marriage societies, as opposed to the rest of the societies, were 12.1 times more likely to classify as 'Strongly disapproved or disallowed' than as 'Tolerated or mildly disapproved' (p.197)."
