  1. Distribution of marriage transactions will be associated with female contribution to subsistence such that bridewealth is more common where female contribution is high (298-9).Schlegel, Alice - Marriage transactions: labor, property, status, 1988 - 2 Variables

    This paper proposes that marriage transactions are mechanisms by which households meet labor needs, distribute property, and maintain or enhance status. The authors find that type of marriage transaction is related to subsistence type and social stratification. In particular, bridewealth is more common where property is limited while dowry is more common among property-owning classes.

  6. Dowry will be associated with societies that are agricultural but have low female subsistance labor (1000).Gaulin, Steven J.C. - Dowry as female competition, 1990 - 3 Variables

    This study tests two models that predict the presence of dowry cross-culturally: the female competition model and the labor-value model. Results suggest that both models are predictive of dowry, however discriminant analysis finds the female competition model to be superior.

  8. Women’s contribution to subsistence will be positively associated with polygyny, exogamy, bridewealth, postpartum sex taboo, girls’ socialization for industriousness, positive evaluation of females, and premarital sexual permissiveness (145-7)Schlegel, Alice - The cultural consequences of female contribution to subsistence, 1986 - 9 Variables

    This study relates female contributions to a variety of social variables. The author divides responses to high female contribution to subsistence into two categories: adaptive (i.e. increased exogamy, polygyny, and bridewealth) and attitudinal (i.e. increased valuation of girls and premarital permissiveness). It is proposed that where women contribute more, “they are perceived less as objects for male sexual and reproductive needs and more as a person in their own right” (149).

  9. The negative association between marriage transactions and permissiveness toward female premarital sex will be more likely in societies in which adolescence ends early (117).Schlegel, Alice - Adolescence: an anthropological inquiry, 1991 - 3 Variables

    This book discusses the characteristics of adolescence cross-culturally and examines the differences in the adolescent experience for males and females. Several relationships are tested in order to gain an understanding of cross-cultural patterns in adolescence.

  10. Controlling for subsistence technology, there will be no significant association between romantic love and subsistence dependence (57).Mukhopadhyay, Carol Chapnick - The function of romantic love: a re-appraisal of the coppinger and rosenblat..., 1979 - 3 Variables

    This article reexamines Coppinger and Rosenblatt’s (1968) finding that romantic love insures marital stability where there is low subsistence dependence between the spouses. Analysis suggests that Coppinger and Rosenblatt’s associated variables, romantic love and subsistence dependence, are only related through their common association with subsistence technology.
