  1. Matrilocality will be positively associated with neighboring societies who speak dissimilar languages (98)Divale, William Tulio - Migration, external warfare, and matrilocal residence, 1974 - 2 Variables

    Several theories on the development of matrilocal residence are tested. The main argument put forth predicts that matrilocal residence will develop in response to a need to break up fraternal interest groups that encourage internal war and instead encourage a pattern of external war that is more beneficial in populated regions with additional group migration.

  2. "Uxorilocal or matrilocal residence and/or matrilineal descent should tend to be correlated with lower levels of cultural complexity than virilocal or patrilocal residence and/or patrilineal descent" (62)Divale, William Tulio - The causes of matrilocal residence: a cross-ethnohistorical survey, 1974 - 2 Variables

    Author proposes and presents evidence in support of the theory that most societies practice virilocal or patrilocal residence (this is the "normal" pattern" and that matrilocal residence is adopted when societies migrate to an already populated area.
