This is just one of the many times throughout the book where, Wei Ping has to have another small body part to please a man. This is different in our culture because, us men do not set a perfect standard for girls, to be very small and little. Next off, in their 17th century chinese culture. The mom has to find the woman the husbands, and dad’s find wives for their son. As said here “ She (Xing Xing) realized in this moment that she’d secretly harbored the hope that someday, stepmother would finally decide to find her a husband to.” (Napoli pg 45) This is mostly different from our culture because, usually the girl or guy find someone they like, and then get their parent’s blessing.
Jehovah Witnesses don't watch Mother's Day or Father's Day since they trust God Jehovah should have all the greatness, not have different people be venerated. Jehovah Witnesses believe any event that does not adore their God is of Pagan reason. This infers they believe the events diverse religions celebrate are a consequence of the Devil. The primary certifiable events Jehovah Witnesses can celebrate are their own particular remembrances and marriage/newborn child showers.Another sociological thought for Jehovah Witnesses is benchmarks. A couple of guidelines for Jehovah Witnesses are no sex before marriage, no wagering, beside no drinking, no untimely birth, and no war.

However, women have higher education can earn income to support family as men do, and if they have problem they will dare to restrict their husband or share their experiences to everyone for helping.
Bledsoe (1976:372) describes that men want to marry to improve their position by having access to women's production and reproduction. Women marry for male labor or wealth, which often goes to her family. From this perspective, it becomes immediately clear that women hold power that men need to improve their social position. Women do not simply marry because they have no capital and need a provider, but it is rather a mutually beneficial exchange that both parties need. Since women do the majority of agricultural work and domestic work, men gain power by marrying as many women as possible (Bledsoe, 1976:376).
They were taught how to be a good wife and mother. Marriage for love was not valued at that time; many women are given away for social status. Many young women were married off to men that were selected by their parents and were much older than them. These women were treated by their husbands as slaves, or their property rather than wives. At that time, these wives were only good for managing the household and showing off the family status.
CULTURE OF THE BATEK Introduction In this paper, I will discuss the basics of the Batek culture and how being an egalitarian society permeates their culture. The Batek are a society consisting of approximately 800 people living primarily in the state of Kelantan on the Malaysia Peninsula. They are an egalitarian society, which is a concept where social equality is essential, and neither males nor females have control over the other group (Endicott, K. M., & Endicott, K. L., 2008). They are known as hunters and gatherers and are nomadic, moving as needed based on weather, food supply, and the forest (Endicott, K. M., & Endicott, K. L., 2008). The egalitarian nature of this group of people permeates all areas of their culture, as we shall see while examining their infrastructure, social structure, and superstructure.
All around the world, people are getting married to the person they prefer to spend the rest of their lives with, however in many cases, this is not true. According to the Oxford dictionary (n.d.), the word marriage refers to the union of two people in a personal relationship and there are several ways in which this is done. The two main traditions of marriage in the society we live in are love marriage and arranged marriage. Love marriage is when the two individuals decide to get married without the interference of their parents and is solely based upon the fact that they are in love. However, on the other hand, arranged marriage is when the parents of the bride and groom decide who they spend the rest of their lives.
Kashmir is geologically located middle of India and Pakistan, but religiously most of residents are Muslims.

The entire foundation of marriage and the way it is propagated seem to favour men a lot more than women. Women are expected to give up a lot more to get married. For instance, in my culture, the Telugu Brahmin culture, though women are allowed to work, they often have to find work in the nearby area where the husband works, even if she has a better scope somewhere else. The husband may himself want to move to the wife’s place of work but that is not encouraged. A woman once married often loses her freedom and sense of identity.
