  5. Subsistence type and marriage type will affect the prevalence rate for rape; 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.

  7. The imposition of bridewealth and brideservice are used by parents to aid in their selection of a son-in-law (91).Apostolou, Menelaos - Brideswealth and brideservice as instruments of parental choice, 2008 - 2 Variables

    This study examines bridewealth and brideservice using a theory that emphasizes the role of parental selection in arranged marriages. Bridewealth and brideprice are postulated to enable parents of the bride to screen their future son-in-law. Information presented is supported by a literature review; no formal testing. See Apostolou, M. (2007) for more analyses.

  8. Arranged marriage will be positively associated with prevalence of rape. (33)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. Female punishment is associated with subsistence type (45)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.
