3 October 2016 Choosing a Partner Social control of mate choice William Goode (“nucleation” of the family) states that all societies impose some controls over mate selection patterns of mate selection tend to support the existing social structure love is possible in all societies, but cultures vary in the degree in the which love is institutionalized (built into the laws, habits, customs, or norms of a society) as a basis for marriage marriages tend to move toward being more love-based as societies become more industrialized in arranged marriages or similar types of marriages, there is a hope that love and connection will develop it is easier to control mate selection before love happens, so many social control strategies prevent love why does society want to control mate selection? to support the existing stratification (social status hierarchy) system to support the existing kinship system structural patterns of love control child marriage child is powerless to resist arranged marriage limits on the field of eligible mates: rules on who you can and can’t marry can’t marry someone already married, incest, some priests in certain churches can’t marry, etc. not many but a few exogamy — marry outside your group/village/tribe endogamy — marry inside group/village/tribe includes those who want to marry inside same religion premarital isolation of the sexes boys hang out with men, girls hang out with women tends to be expensive and hard to do chaperoning — (according to William Goode) an unmarried person, usually female, is accompanied by an older, usually female, companion either paid or kin who prevents inappropriate interaction with the other sex 5 October 2016 Choosing a Partner Social control of mate choice indirect parents and peer controls — common where peer controls exist, especially where there is a youth culture product of the high school system few direct controls on mate choice, mostly indirect parents — which school district you go to, which social clubs, activities, etc. peers — who you get to know in organizations, activities, etc… may be more or less appropriate Brief History of Love The Ancient Greek 5th century BC started writing about love. Most works that we have seen are works by Plato. women seen as inferior patriarchal society practiced arranged marriage Plato felt love was vital to life. Love was tied to virtue and goodness Common love — what we would think of as physical, heterosexual or homosexual, love. Happened to men and women. Heavenly love — something spiritual and intellectual. “Brain” love, considered it to be with homosexuals women seen as so inferior that they could not experience love in the same way as two males could gave us the idea that love can be both physical and spiritual Ancient Romans most important works are from the first century AD most works about love come from the philosopher Ovid — wrote The Art of Love written for elites a book about extramarital affairs describes love as sensual, sexual, not intellectual, not spiritual, love is warfare (all about who can get as much from someone as you can) arranged marriages based on politics, alliances, economics, etc hardly ever based on love Middle Ages — 12th century courtly love Andrew the Chaplain — The Art of Courtly Love written for elite classes may have been written for amusement wrote about knights and noblewomen — arranged marriages focuses on extramarital affairs women controlled the “speed” or “depth” of affairs
