Other Cross Sex Relationships

The mother's brother plays a disciplinary role and mentors his nieces and nephews. Joking relationships exist between specific types of relatives. Prurient joking is conducted between maternal grandmothers and grandsons, unmarried siblings of wife or husband with her or his unmarried siblings, and cross cousins who are not potential mates. In contrast, prurient joking is acceptable between father-in-law and son-in-law, while less explicit jokes about members of the opposite sex are regularly conducted between maternal or paternal uncles and aunts with nephews and nieces, respectively.

Mother-in-law avoidance on the part of sons-in-law, which was strictly adhered to for generations, is practiced on a limited basis today. Many sons-in-law simply make themselves scarce and useful while their mother-in-law is present, while others agree to drop the restriction entirely.
