Marriage Culture of Raglai Ethnic Group

NGUYEN NGOC THANH, HO SY LAP

Tóm tắt


Based on the results of research on the Raglai ethnic group in Khanh Hoa province, the article points out that marriages of the group bear the features of a matriarchal society such as a girl “catching” a man to be her husband, a son-in-law residing in his wife's family, children adopting their mothers’ surnames... However, Raglai marriages are formed on the bases of the couple’s love and voluntarism and the consent of their parents and members of the clan. The Raglai follow the principles of [biological] exogamy and monogamy. In addition, the role and position of Raglai men in the family and society are different from those in other matriarchal ethnic groups. These factors are the features which characterise the ethnic group’s marriages.
