Final  A. stockard book argues that this anti- marital bias was not resistance to the major marriage system commonly  found   in   china.   Blind   marriage(uxolocal   marriage   for   families   that   did   not   have   son).  delayed transfer marriage”  conclusion, there was a correlation between the resistance to  delayed transfer marriage and the increased status and wealth role of bridedaughters during  the mechanization of the sericulture(silk making) industry. Also delayed transfer marriage  system involved a newly wed woman continuing to live in her natal home for approximately  three years before taking up residence with her husband in virilocal residence. Also, practived  in this area was secondary marriage. In this, there was no delya in transfer from a woman’s  own home to her husband’s residence. This was an inferior form of marriage and the woman  were drawn from an underclass of young girls who had been sold into what essentially was  domestic servitude at an early age.  EX) strategy in marriage resistance : 1.  Compensation marriage-  the wife does not want to  get married so she pays the in law to get out of it. After in laws. Takes the money and buys the  secondary wife. Secondary wife was sold by her parents and came fro, a poor family.  However  it   is   not  a  divorce.   She  is   technically   marriage  but   just  does   not.   2.   Sworn  spinsterhood:  why you want to be a spinster? Afraid of marriage and child birth. Unmarried  women resided in spinster houses, which provided them a host for their spirit and tablet after  death and suitable residence. 3.  Bride initiated spirit marriage : people arrange posthumous  marriage for their sons that have died. Terrible to die without being marriage. Among Nuer  terrivel to die without children. Easting Chinese practice: if people dead before getting  married the women would get married a spirit. Women used spirit marriage to het out of the  real marriage. They want to freedom and independent form in –law. Women who had a good  jib got married to a dead men stisfied independent goals of women also satisfied the goals  the of the parents young man. Worked for these whose parents refused their daughter to  become spinsters women would competed over the spirit of the man that died. Parents of  the young man would offer them and marry their sons off in proper order. Parents of the  decreased young men   useful for those who wanted to maintain the family line. Once their  sons get married they can adopt a child.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
