  3. Love being a basis for marriage is correlated with neolocality.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.

  6. 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.

  7. The degree to which a woman's marriage is arranged by her family will be negatively related to the use of marriage for love (17).Hull, Brooks - The economics of misbehavior, love and marriage contract enforcement, 1989 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the predictors of arranged marriage versus marriage for love. Several predictions are supported and results uphold the hypothesis that "societies promote the method of marriage contract enforcement best adapted to available production technology, incentives to misbehave, and methods of coercion."

  9. "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.
