  1. Romantic love as a criterion in mate selection will be negatively associated with the prevalence of extended families (323).Lee, Gary R. - Mate-selection systems and criteria: variation according to family structure, 1980 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the relationships between family structure, type of mate-selection system, and romantic love as a basis for mate-selection. Analysis indicates that autonomous mate selection is more common in societies with nuclear family structure and neolocal residence patterns. Romantic love as a basis for mate selection is also more common with nuclear family organization, but it is negatively associated with neolocal residence patterns.

  4. "Romantic love would be a stronger factor in societies with non neolocal residence [as opposed to those with neolocal residence or neolocal residence as a significant alternative]" (476)Rosenblatt, Paul C. - Marital residence and the functions of romantic love, 1967 - 2 Variables

    This article explores the relationship between marital residence and romantic love; results suggest that romantic love is most important in societies with non-neolocal marital residence. The author explores potential functions of romantic love, including bolstering against the divisive pressure of relatives, or to substitute for economic interdependence between spouses.

  5. Besides type of economy, ancestor worship, family structure, postmarital residence, and emphasis on conformity are all associated with status of the elderly (417-418)Ishii-Kuntz, Masako - Status of the elderly: an extension of the theory, 1987 - 5 Variables

    This article reassesses the cross-cultural work on status of the elderly and tests two additional variables, socialization values and ancestor worship, as predictors of the status of the elderly.

  6. Societies with nuclear families are more likely to have romantic love as a basis for marriage than other societies.de Munck, Victor C. - Love, Marriage, Family Organization and the Puzzle of Neolocality in Non-Ind..., 2022 - 2 Variables

    This paper presents research on the factors that promote romantic love as a basis for marriage in non-industrial societies. After a discussion of the previous literature on romantic love in ethnographic societies, the authors used the SCCS, EA, and data from eHRAF to create a data set of 109 cultures and then utilized multiple ordinal regression to test the relationship between different types of families and post-marital residence practices and the importance of romantic love in marriage. The findings show that monogamy is significantly correlated with romantic love, while nuclear family organization and neolocal post-marital residence are not significantly correlated. The presence of polygyny is found to lower the probability of romantic love being a basis for marriage. These findings contradict previous research, which found a relationship between non-neolocal post-marital residence and the presence of romantic love in marriage.

  7. There will be a positive relationship between the presence of romantic love and the nuclear family (8).de Munck, Victor C. - Romantic Love and Family Organization: A Case for Romantic Love as a Biosoci..., 2016 - 2 Variables

    Previous cross-cultural studies of romantic love have, in the authors' view, been plagued by vague definitions of the concept and a conflation of cultural, bio-psychological, and social factors. Thus, the authors distinguish between the social aspect of romantic love (which they argue is a universal human predisposition) and the variable cultural valuation of romance. In a large cross-cultural sample, the authors test the hypotheses that gender equality and family organization are important predictors of the cultural valuation of romantic love.
