Other Cross Sex Relationships

There are no public signs of boyfriend-girlfriend relationships; it is difficult to work out husband-wife relationships from public behavior. By contrast, same-sex friendships and family relationships are marked by public signs of casual intimacy—holding hands, arms draped across shoulders—that are without sexual meaning.

Brother-sister relationships can be quite strong and affectionate, as can father-daughter and mother-son relationships. In contrast, older brother-younger brother relationships are often conflicted due to inheritance and status rivalry; father-son relationships are also often difficult and strained. Resident grandparents are respected and looked after; increasingly in villages, grandparents are in loco parentis as the primary mother-father are away working.

Outside the family, relationships between people of the opposite sex are rare except for strictly work-related purposes.
