Figure 53: Ranges of Exogamy and Endogamy

The diagram specifies three ranges of relationship:
  1. an inner group of close relatives with whom marriage is forbidden,
  2. an intermediate range of relatives, associates, and allies with whom marriage relations are encouraged and often required, and
  3. an outer range of outsiders with whom marriage or other forms of interaction must be avoided.
