Additionally, she may not marry a boy with her father's name or her brother's name, and a boy in turn may not marry someone with his mother or sister's name"(p. 86). For the Ju/'hoansi, it's not only important to avoid incest with obvious relatives, they go so far as to ban the marriages between people with the same names as relatives of the opposite sex. Although the Ju/'hoansi have a stricter marriage practice, compared to that of western cultures, they still learn these rules the same way everyone else does, through their family.

Family Life Family life has changed greatly since the 1950’s. In those years, every aspect of a family was based upon certain roles performed by the spouses. Today, wives no longer solely cook for the family or take care of the children and husbands are no longer the singular providers for the family. The change in roles creates more confusion, which then increases the levels of necessary involvement and attempts for successful family functioning.

As explained before, when a couple engages in marriage and then children, the roles at home become “more conventional gender-based” in terms of family and work (Coltrane, 2010, p. 121). The father works more hours and the mother attends to family care. It is important to invest in constructing a family that is ungendered or less gendered. This may difficult given the social norm and the external factors that may leak into the family household; however, it is vital for parents and children to make family decision without considering the gender norm.
