Figure 69: Patrilateral Cross Cousin Marriage
Members of four different lineages intermarry.
No cousin rule is applied.
The patrilateral cross cousin marriage rule is applied:
A man marries his father's sister's
daughter, his patrilateral cross cousin.
The marriage rule in this case effects a different pattern of exchanges
in comparison with the previous generation; while women
of the first tier marry men from one group (A to B, B to C ,
etc), women of the next marry in the reverse direction (A to D,
B to A, etc.)
The application of the patrilateral rule in the third generation
reverses the circulation of women again, thus reiterating the pattern
of the initial generation.
