  1. Male kin will provide more indirect care than direct care during birth (p. 201).Huber, Brad R. - Evolutionary theory, kinship, and childbirth in cross-cultural perspective, 2007 - 2 Variables

    Using an evolutionary perspective, this study tests hypotheses relating gender and kinship roles to the amount of direct and indirect care provided during and around childbirth. The roles of paternal certainty, residence rules and descent groups are also examined.

  4. Brides and their parents are expected to have a greater net gain in resources at the time of marriage than grooms and their parents, respectively (354).Huber, Brad R. - New cross-cultural perspectives on marriage transactions, 2011 - 1 Variables

    This article refines previous research on marriage transactions and offers descriptions of new types of marriage transactions. First, the authors examine the frequency and distribution of marriage transactions. Second,the authors use a bio-cultural approach to examine how differences in male and female reproductive strategies and the kin selection theory are associated with marriage transactions.

  6. Polygyny and patrilaterality are predicted to be positively related to the net number of marriage transactions of brides and their parents and negatively related to the net number of marriage transactions of grooms and their parents (363).Huber, Brad R. - New cross-cultural perspectives on marriage transactions, 2011 - 3 Variables

  7. Polygyny will be positively associated with length of postpartum sex taboo (267).Korotayev, Andrey V. - Explaining current fertility dynamics in tropical Africa from an anthropolog..., 2016 - 2 Variables

    This paper presents tests of the relationships between tropical African agriculture and cultural variables regulating reproduction in order to examine a theory which suggests that the lagging or absence of tropical Africa's demographic transition is the result of pervasive 'pro-natal' cultural practices. Strength of association between these factors and non-plow agriculture, the traditional method of farming in tropical Africa, leads the authors to suggest that women's larger subsistence role in these societies favors extended family households in which child-rearing responsibilities can be shared, and polygynous marriage systems in which co-wives can contribute substantially to the family's labor productivity. These, along with erosion of regulations on postpartum sex and birth spacing which were prevalent prior to modernization, are identified as characterstics which have and will continue to resist fertility decline.

  8. Father-infant proximity is positively associated with marital quality (217)Hendrix, Lewellyn - Quality and equality in marriage: a cross-cultural view, 1997 - 2 Variables

  9. Polygynous societies that engage in a long postpartum sexual taboo will be positively associated with male circumcision at puberty when the factor of living-quarter arrangements is controlled (206)Kitahara, Michio - Polygyny: insufficient father-son contact and son's masculine identity, 1976 - 4 Variables

    The purpose of this article is to examine circumcision and segregation of males at puberty. It is suggested that when the son has insufficient contact with his father due to the separation caused by polygynous relationships, the son may develop a feminine personality. The significance of this is compared with the significance of a close mother-son relationship.
