In the novel Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe presents the idea of how Igbo culture and religion define the roles for each gender and examines how unequal roles in society can lead to conflicts between each gender in order to illustrate how they can lead to permanently damaged relationships. The main driving forces behind gender role beliefs in Things Fall Apart are a result of the ideologies set by the Ibo people. Their culture dictated men as stronger people who did more work, while women were dictated as individuals who were weak and inferior because they did household activities.

What does it mean when Jesus referred to Himself as a Bridegroom? Understanding the ancient Jewish wedding customs helps to make the meanings very clear.

Family and Belonging as an Identity Although there exist many different types of the conceivable notion of family, they all serve a similar purpose of the loving, caring and supporting of members within the family.

HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL BACKGROUND Most religions of the world have different views regarding the moral issues that arise from people's sexuality in society and in human interactions. Each major religion has developed moral codes covering issues of sexuality, morality, ethics etc. These moral conducts seek to regulate the situations which can give rise to sexual significance and to influence people's sexual activities and practices. Sexual morality is a wider concept and varies from time to time and between cultures. Sexual norms and standard of sexual activities can be associated to religious beliefs, or social and environmental conditions.
However, it has been contended that the structures or types of families have come to change as much as the definition itself. The adjustment in structure goes back to the mid-eighteenth century when the thought of free decision and marriage for love and adoration succeeded as a social idea (Coontz, 2005:7). This weakened initial perceptions of marriage as a vital institution within which a family is built, making it optional, fragile and consequently affecting family systems thereafter. From that point forward, regular families have developed regarding expected gender roles, fundamental foundational structures, family relative communications and societal requirements. Today a basic family can have two fathers and a child or a working mother, a stay at home dad, an adopted daughter (of an alternate ethnical foundation) and a biological child.
