Week 5 Discussion For this discussion I chose to focus on the approach of analogy (Analogies are a type of comparison. When used fairly and effectively, they help readers by linking a complicated idea or concept with something readers already understand) Most everyone understands marriage? Although if you are like me who does not have a social media account and only uses the internet for researching jobs, homework papers, physician information, or other misc information to be aware of what goes on in society. Then you would not know that there are more than one type of marriage in society. Which has changed over time, or maybe it was well hidden and the different types of marriages are just now coming out into the light. I chose to research the types of marriages that have become a norm to our social studies. For example the following are just some of the types of marriages I learned about: 1. Arranged alliances: Marriage is a truly ancient institution that predates recorded history. But early marriage was seen as a strategic alliance between families, with the youngsters often having no say in the matter. In some cultures, parents even married one child to the spirit of a deceased child in order to strengthen familial bonds, Coontz said. 2. Family ties: Keeping alliances within the family was also quite common. In the Bible, the forefathers Isaac and Jacob married cousins and Abraham married his half-sister. Cousin marriages remain common throughout the world, particularly in the Middle East. In fact, Rutgers anthropologist Robin Fox has estimated that the majority of all marriages throughout history were between first and second cousins.
