  1. Direct and indirect care investments by biologically uncertain kin are largest in patrilateral societies (p. 207).Huber, Brad R. - Evolutionary theory, kinship, and childbirth in cross-cultural perspective, 2007 - 4 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.

  2. Female kin (grandmothers and aunts) will provide more direct and indirect care than male kin (grandfathers and uncles) (p. 201).Huber, Brad R. - Evolutionary theory, kinship, and childbirth in cross-cultural perspective, 2007 - 3 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. Paternal confidence level, polygyny rate, level of pathogen stress, relative age of spouses, and divorce rate will be positively associated with wealth transfer to the bride and her parents (284-6).Huber, Brad R. - Material resource investments at marriage: evolutionary, social, and ecologi..., 2011 - 6 Variables

    This article focuses on parents’ investment of material resources at the time of their child’s marriage. Two patterns emerge from the data: wealth is generally transferred from the groom’s family to the bride’s and from the couple’s parents to the bride and groom. Social and ecological factors are also examined. Multiple regression analysis shows that paternal confidence level, societal polygyny rate, and level of pathogen stress can affect the aforementioned wealth transfer patterns.

  5. There will be a positive association between male parental certainty and more settled forms of subsistence (278).Gray, J. Patrick - Parental certainty, subsistence and inheritance revisited, 1981 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the results of a study (Gaulin 1980) on male parental certainty and subsistence type. Methodological errors are assessed and the hypotheses are retested.

  6. Female extramarital promiscuity will be positively associated with endogamous marriage systems (157).Greene, Penelope J. - Promiscuity, paternity, and culture, 1978 - 2 Variables

    This study examines several aspects of human society that are associated with underlying patterns of genetic relationships. Results suggest that paternity certainty (measured by female extramarital promiscuity) is related to kinship terminology systems and marriage systems.

  7. Paternity certainty will be higher in societies that use Eskimo-type kinship terminology systems and lower in societies that use Iroquois-type systems (155).Greene, Penelope J. - Promiscuity, paternity, and culture, 1978 - 2 Variables

    This study examines several aspects of human society that are associated with underlying patterns of genetic relationships. Results suggest that paternity certainty (measured by female extramarital promiscuity) is related to kinship terminology systems and marriage systems.

  8. A double standard in extramarital sex norms will be positively related to post-partum sex taboos (199).Broude, Gwen J. - Extramarital sex norms in cross-cultural perspective, 1980 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the double standard regarding extramarital norms for men and women in relation to other sociocultural factors. Results suggest that a double standard is significantly related to post-partum sex taboos, hypermasculinity, and father absence.

  9. In societies with higher rates of male extramarital sex, there will be less male parental investment.Raj, Vrishica - Effects of male power and status on polygyny, extramarital sex, and parental..., 2018 - 2 Variables

    The present research inquires into the effects, if any, that male status and power have on extramarital sex, parental investment, and polygyny. Using sexual selection theory, the hypothesis is that males in higher positions of power and status are more likely to engage in extramarital sexual activities and be in polygynous relationships was supported. There was no support for an association between male extramarital sex and parental investment.

  10. "Men stipulate an heir whose relatedness is less affected by low [probability of paternity] in societies where [probability of paternity] is relatively low" (653).Hartung, John - Paternity and inheritance of wealth, 1981 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the relationship between inheritance and paternity certainty. Results indicate an "association between relatively frequent female extramarital sex and a cultural norm that allows men to designate heirs whose relatedness is relatively unaffected by low probability of paternity."
