Husband Wife Relationship Arranged Marriages

Older marriages, those that were the result of arrangements made by clan elders, vary rather extensively in terms of degrees of love, affection, and companionship. In some cases, men and women who have been married as long as 40 or 50 years remain hostile and aloof, even after producing many children. On the other hand, these same men and women eat, sleep, and spend time together. Because of the degree to which males are recognized as "heads" of households, men in these families are the decision-makers. In these older marriages, too, there is more likely to be a focus on traditional subsistence work rather than wage labor. Subsistence work is generally gender defined, so that these men and women are less likely to work outside of the home in mixed male-female company. Depending on the relationship which the wife has with her husband's lineage, she may find herself doing much of her work alone because of the unsettled nature of her marriage relationship.
