Social patterns differed between New England and the Chesapeake, contributing to the disparities between the two areas. First of all, records from ships bound for New England during the 1600’s show that emigrants traveled in families and groups consisting of husbands, wives, children, kinsmen, and servants. Customarily colonists traveling together were from the same area of England and would settle close together in self-sufficient communities upon reaching their destination. (Document B) Furthermore, rich and poor alike settled in townships, and every family received a sizable lot in which a house could be built. Additionally, everyone shared a meadow where they worked together to cultivate the land and raise livestock.

Traditionally American weddings take place in a church, family and friends are formally invited and they have bridesmaids, flower girls, and a ring bearer. The bride and the groom always have a dance too after they have said their vows. Pakistani weddings have two sides, first there’s a religious ceremony at a mosque where there’s a mullah who reads them their vows and there can’t be any music at this part of the wedding because this part is like a Islamic ceremony where the bride and groom make a promise in front of God. After the religious part is over the other part of the wedding usually takes place a week after where they can dance and enjoy. Family and friends play a big role in both weddings; they are the most important part of the wedding.

Housework was a very important task and women were supposed to take great joy in it. Upper and middle class girls were taught from a young age the skills they would need in order to keep a happy, healthy, peaceful home. While the outside world and working force were definitively male, the home was considered to be a feminine place. The outside world was evil and full of sin and wrongdoing, but the home was a moral haven (MacKethan). Husbands went to work in the corrupt world of industry, so they were meant to come home, decompress, and once again become attuned with their compassionate side.
