Résumé / Abstract

In this article a hypothesis is developed and tested that asserts that avoidance between son-in-law and mother-in-law is associated with culturally expected economic interaction between these relatives. On the grounds of both the correlation that was found and an analysis of the participants' views on son-in-law/mother-in-law avoidance, the custom is interpreted as a device for distinguishing the son-in-law/mother-in-law relationship from the husband-wife relationship in societies where these relationships tend to be similar as far as their economic aspect is concerned. The final part of the article seeks to identify the conditions that give rise to economic interaction between son-in-law and mother-in-law.
