Consequently, patrilinear kinship structures were less affected in the area of the orthodox church than in the West.

In a patrilinear system, boundaries of social group cohesion and social differences between the group and 'other' groups are often constructed through the women.
In patrilinear groups, the boundaries of social cohesion within the groups and social differences between the group and the 'other' are often constructed via women.
In this paper, I looked at the way ethnic identity is constructed in patrilinear and virilocal societies like those of the Mafa and Fulbe, and I showed that in an ethnic endogamic and clan exogamic society like that of the Mafa, differences between one ethnic group and the ‘other’ are constructed through the women.

 fergail: Evolution of the Family
Whether the social structure was matrilinear or patrilinear, it was the universal rule of every known society that a woman, before she bears a child, must be committed to an individual male partner.
For example, in the matrilinear societies and families of ancient times, where the moral discipline demanded less repression of instincts than the patrilinear society, cultural achievement was less impressive and the society was less flexible in adapting to altered circumstances.
The patriarchal society and family required chastity and self-sacrifice on behalf of the wife, obedience and discipline on the part of the children and acceptance of a heavy burden of responsibility by the father who was expected to submit his personal feelings and urges to the interests of the family.

 What special insight might anthropology provide into the modern western family?
In the 19th century, it was believed that kinship systems had developed through similar stages in different parts of the world, from matrilineal to patrilinear and agnatic systems, and from “primitive promiscuity” with no identifiable marriage arrangements, to polygamy and then monogamy.
The natural and economical evolution for the pairing marriage is the “Monogamous family” which features a strong marriage tie, “the supremacy of the man” (1968: 62) and the patrilinear descent system.
According to Engels, the birth of the monogamous family is a direct consequence of economic motivations: it was necessary to guarantee that children could inherit the wealth accumulated in the previous generations.

The approaches included mandatory annual meetings between Qing representatives and chieftains, the mandated inheritance of chieftainships along patrilinear lines, and the requirement that successive chieftains be chosen from among members of the chieftain family that had been educated in Chinese schools.
In addition, the new rules of patrilinear succession increased the local chieftains' autonomy with respect to other local elites, because local elites and customs could no longer exert any power over who the new governing chieftain would be.
The author discusses the effectiveness of these reforms in strengthening relationships between the Qing and local chieftains, and in creating greater political autonomy for chieftains in their local areas.

The 17th century wars led kings to give their sons the leadership and appoint them, rather than their sister?s sons, as successors, under the influence of rival brothers and French missionaries as princely educators.

 Electronic Journal of Australian and New Zealand History:
On that tree, his great-aunt Florence Ada Barton, formerly considered a 'dead-end' in the sense of being without issue, turned out unexpectedly to be a rhizomic offshoot on the patrilinear family trees of both Greetham and his new-found Barton cousins.
I think it is still accurate to say that one of the first tasks that an editor of a multiple-witness medieval work will undertake is to distinguish the Bartons from the Greethams and to reduce the Florence Adas to collateral but inherently contaminated witnesses to the patriarchal name.
Greetham acknowledges that this map can't be so easily confined within the neat arboreal model he has used to chart his patrilinear evolution.

Moreover, this dynasticism was, by the personal rule of Louis XIV, patrimonial and patrilinear, based upon primogeniture (and increasingly entail).
It had moved away from the far looser idea of a family corporation that Professor Collins and I would agree had been the hallmark of the sixteenth-century state and society.
Certainly Louis XIV believed this, and significantly his brother Philippe I, duc d’Orléans, was prepared to swallow this principle with minimal complaint.

 Historical and Contemporary Perspectives on Reproduction and Infant Development (Spring 2005) - Hampshire College - ...
Italian medieval statutory law relied on Aristotle when proclaiming that mothers were not related to their children, while Galen’s bilateral account of procreation contested such sternly patrilinear medical/legal fictions.
Non-maternal nursing was a profoundly ambiguous practice in the context of a culture in which kinship was thought to be an exclusively male affair.
It seemed to support the idea that individual mothers’ contributions to procreation and early infant care were negligent, even dispensable; on the other hand, it drew attention to the fictitious character of patrilinear kinship.

 Indian Mythology - Totemism And Totemic Spirits
The ceremonies of the tribes of the North-West fall into two classes, following their social and ceremonial organization.
The social division into clans, which are matrilinear and exogamic in the north, while patrilinear or mixed systems prevail in the south, finds outward expression in totemic insignia and in ceremonial representations of the myths narrating the beginnings of the septs.
The manner of revelation is precisely that in which the Indian everywhere in North America acquires his guardian or tutelary, his personal totem: in fast or trance the man is borne away by the animal-being, taken perhaps to the lodge of its kind, and there given an initiation which he carries back to his people.
