  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. Subsistence type is associated with ease of divorce (44)Apostolou, Menelaos - Sexual selection under parental choice in agropastoral societies, 2010 - 2 Variables

    Previous studies have proposed a model of sexual selection that dictates that along with female and male choice, parental choice constitutes a significant sexual selection force in our species. This article aims at examining whether this model can also account for the mating patterns typical of agricultural and pastoral societies. The hypotheses are supported by the results presented.

  5. 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.
