In this selection, the MacDougall’s explore the importance of co-wives and polygyny among the Turkana. Once you watched the video, discuss it using the questions below to guide your thoughts: How does Naingiro answer the anthropologist when she was asked about jealousy and fighting among co-wives?.

How do Turkana women and women describe the benefits of polygyny? Transcript 1 Transcript 2 View film clip: Marriages in Heaven  (Links to an external site.)  [5:52]

This selection presents a traditional Sikh wedding in San Jose, California, and explores the role of arranged marriages among Indian immigrant families. Once you watched the video, discuss it using the questions below to guide your thoughts:

 First, how is the Sikh wedding similar or different from weddings you have attended in your community?. Further, how is the family, or kinship system, involved in the ceremony?. Consequently, what might be some benefits of an arranged marriage? Finally, how would you feel about having your spouse chosen by a matchmaker Transcript
