  1. Homosexuality will be more prevalent in agropastoral than in hunting & gathering societies when controlling for community size. (6)Apostolou, Menelaos - Is homosexuality more prevalent in agropastoral than in hunting and gatherin..., 2016 - 3 Variables

    The researcher predicts a positive association between prevalence of homosexuality and agricultural and pastoral subsistence types, reasoning that higher frequency of arranged marriages among agropastoral societies will lessen negative selection pressure on genes which encode for non-exclusive heterosexual orientation. Findings appear to support the prediction.

  3. Agropastoral subsistence activity will be positively associated with frequency of premarital sex. (3)Apostolou, Menelaos - Individual Mate Choice in an Arranged Marriage Context: Evidence from the St..., 2017 - 2 Variables

    The author performs tests of hypothesized relationships between arranged marriage and various forms of non-sanctioned mate choice. Overall, the author theorizes that where marriages are arranged, mate choice will be found in higher prevalence of premarital sex, extramarital sex, and rape. Most tests support these relationships in the hypothesized directions, suggesting that strict regulation of marriage provides parents with some, but far from complete control over the mate choice of their offspring.

  10. Subsistence type and marriage type will affect the frequency of premarital relations; this relationship will differ between societies where arranged marriages are prevalent and societies where it is not (p.195).Apostolou, Menelaos - Individual Mate Choice in an Arranged Marriage Context: Evidence from the St..., 2017 - 4 Variables

    Apostolou examines the argument that most of human evolution occurred in an environment where individuals had limited opportunity to exercise choice. This argument derives from evidence indicating that among contemporary and ancestral postindustrial societies, mate choice is regulated by parents choosing their children's spouses. Results from the present study show that in an arranged marriage setting, there is still space for individuals to exercise choice in mates (through premarital and extramarital relationships, as well as rape). Apostolou discusses possible explanations for these findings, as well as their evolutionary significance.
