Marriage exchanges between villages are very common among the Yanomamo community. Marriage is partly a political process where young girls are promised to men of other village with the thought of creating alliances. The major reason behind this is to ensure a peaceful coexistence between the different tribes in these villages.

(2) Marriage creates families and promotes social stability. But there is a weakness in his argument such as: (1) Decision to marry belongs to the individual not the government and if tradition were the only measure, most states would still limit matrimony to partners of the same race (para. 6). Stoddard is making an argument, offering a thesis: Reasons gay marriage should be legalized. He begins his successful argument using the appeal to emotion
According to some, a nuclear family may be viewed as a group to be called a nuclear that consists of, at some time, a father, mother and at least one child. Almost every society has this family structure within it and thus the family is group is viewed and defined by this model. Today there are many nuclear families that do not fit this conventional model which is said to have been most popular during the mid-part of the 20th century. It is also in my opinion, though the conventional family has become part of the norm for family systems today, the perceptions of a traditional family co-exists within the hopes of becoming a reality for the non-conventional family. Of course, my nuclear family weighs on the side of non-conventional in every way.
Solidarity is an essential theory for anthropologists throughout the world. Solidarity, a form of unity within a group, was categorized by Emile Durkheim.

This is really sad to me simply because it’s a give or take relationship. You give away your time with your family and friend and the environment your used just to take your soul mate’s hand in marriage. The couple is then forced to stay in that state because they may not receive the same benefits in any other state. I believe that a same sex married couple should receive the same benefits as a man and woman married couple would. This means being able to move to different states and still being considered as a married couple.
It emphasises an intimate relationship with all aspects of their lives, all living things and the environment (Poroch et al., 2009, pp. 2, 6). An important cultural aspect is 'the Dreamings' which inform their history, culture, identity and codes of 'behaviour and social relations' (Broome, 2002, p. 19). 'The Dreamings' made the law passed on to the ancestors. Law is the stories and songs, the ceremonies and naming of everything, it is the rules by which Indigenous Australians live, it is their spiritual connection and responsibility to their country and Kin (Harvey in Crowden, 2013, p.117).
Family a Socialization Agent Families are considered the most important aspect of a person’s socialization development. Centuries before the family unit was known as families they were called kinships which “referred to a social network of people based on common ancestry, marriage, or adoption (Kendall, 2013, p. 435). Families are defined as “relationships in which people live together with commitment, form an economic unit and care for any young, and consider their identity to be significantly attached to the group” (Kendall, 2013, p.435). Sociologist Jean Piaget founded four stages of development in human cognition. His first two stages is perhaps the best explanation as to why the family unit is considered the most important aspect of a person’s socialization development.
