Final Review Chapter 15: Family Nuclear Family: consists of a cohabiting man and woman who maintain a socially approved sexual relationship and have at least one child. Traditional Nuclear Family: is a nuclear family in which the husband works outside the home for money and the wife works without pay in home. Polygamy: expands the nuclear family horizontally by adding one ore more puses (usually women) to the household. Extended Family: expands the nuclear family vertically by adding another generation one or more of the spouses parents to the household. Marriage: is a socially approved, presumably long term sexual and economic union between a man and a woman. It involves reciprocal rights and obligations between spouses and between parents and children. Five Main Functions of Marriage and the Nuclear Family: 1) Sexual Regulation: Murdock says that by using marriage as a means to provide a legitimate forum for expressing the intense human need for sexual activity makes social order possible. Murdock concludes that sex is not the primary reason for marriage. 1 www.notesolution.com
