  1. 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.

  3. Direct and indirect care investments by biologically uncertain kin are positively associated with a society's paternity certainty level (p. 207).Huber, Brad R. - Evolutionary theory, kinship, and childbirth in cross-cultural perspective, 2007 - 4 Variables

  4. 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

    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.

  5. At the time of marriage, wealth is generally transferred from the groom’s family to the bride’s and from the couple’s parents to the bride and groom (288).Huber, Brad R. - Material resource investments at marriage: evolutionary, social, and ecologi..., 2011 - 1 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.

  6. 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

[and in societies where husband and wife sleep together] . . . the husband is [generally] permitted to be present . . . when his wife is giving birth . . ."Whiting, John W.M. - Aloofness and intimacy of husbands and wives: a cross-cultural study, 1975 - 4 Variables

    This study examines husband-wife relationships, specifically rooming and sleeping arrangements, as they relate to variables such as infant care, subsistence, residence, and cultural complexity. Several hypotheses are tested and all are supported.

  10. Patrilateral emphasis in foraging groups (either patrilocality or patrilineal descent) will be positively associated with severity of premarital sex restrictions (188).Martin, M. Kay - Female of the species, 1975 - 5 Variables

    This book discusses the role of women cross-culturally. The authors use a cross-cultural sample to examine the differences between men and women in contribution to subsistence as well as the social juxtaposition of the sexes in foraging, horticultural, agricultural, pastoral, and industrial societies.
