Other Cross Sex Relationships

Numerous cross-sex relationships among kin are of importance. Cousin marriage, for example, is fairly frequent, and so are exchange marriages between sets of brothers and sisters. While a man may marry his deceased wife's sister, in keeping with Islamic norms, he may not marry two sisters in a polygynous relationship. Similarly, a man's widow may marry his younger brother in a levirate marriage, but she must always be deferential, and ideally even veil, before his elder brother and father. The relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is always affectionate, and if an elderly widow lives alone, she sometimes adopts a grandson as her heir and leaves him her property.
