Some sexually selected traits are advantageous because when a male and female encounter each other they increase the likelihood of being deemed an acceptable mate. In addition, some male traits subsequently affect the way a female uses sperm. Both types of traits evolve due to mate choice arising from mating preferences. However, not all sexually selected traits require mate choice. Weaponry can confer an advantage in direct contests for mates in the absence of choosiness although there are sometimes mating preferences for individuals with impressive weapons , as can investment into ejaculates when sperm from different males compete to fertilize eggs.

Sexual selection can also favor locomotory or olfactory abilities that increase the mate encounter rate. Selection for traits that are preferred by the opposite sex i. The more challenging task is to identify the benefits of choosiness. This is the focus of most theoretical studies of mate choice. If there was no cost to being choosy then mating preferences could arise as pleiotropic by-products of selection on other traits.

Often, however, choice is costly. A lower mating rate might appear inevitable, given that choosiness implies some otherwise acceptable potential mates are rejected. Sometimes, however, mate choice is more nuanced with no outright rejection of potential mates.

While the finding does not go to the extreme as to suggest a desire for a superior race, researchers from University of Colorado, Boulder acknowledge that prior research has shown that people tend to marry others who have similar characteristics. Commonalities with a spouse often include religion, age, race, income, body type, and education, among others. In the new study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists show that people also are more likely to pick mates who have similar DNA.

Emphasis is placed on the customs that regulate choice of mates. A counter perspective views the family as an association. This perspective centers instead on the couple and attempts to understand the process of marital dyad formation. Both of these perspectives generate an abundance of knowledge concerning mate selection. Sociological inquiry that sees the family as a social institution in the context of the larger society focuses instead on the evolution of courtship systems as societies modernize.

In this respect, it is important to note the contributions of scholars such as Bernard Murstein , who have pointed out the importance of cultural and historical effects on courtship systems that lead to marriage. Historical evidence suggests that, as a society modernizes, changes in the courtship system reflect a movement toward autonomous courtship systems. Thus, parentally arranged marriages diminish in industrialized cultures, since arranged marriages are found in societies in which strong extended kinship ties exist or in which the marriage has great significance for the family and community in terms of resources or status allocation.

As societies modernize, arranged marriages are supplanted by an autonomous courtship system in which free choice of mate is the preferred form. Family social scientists have tried to understand the human mate selection process by using a variety of data sources and theoretical perspectives. The most global or macro approaches have made use of vital statistics such as census data or marriage license applications to study the factors that predict mate selection.

Attention has been placed on social and cultural background characteristics such as age, social class, race, religion, and educational level. Bargaining and exchange take place in contemporary selection processes, and these exchanges are based on common cultural understandings about the value of the units of exchange.

Duration[ edit ] The average duration of courtship varies considerably throughout the world. Furthermore, there is vast individual variation between couples. Courtship may be completely omitted, as in cases of some arranged marriages where the couple do not meet before the wedding. In the United Kingdom , a poll of 3, [1] engaged or married couples resulted in an average duration between first meeting and accepted proposal of marriage of 2 years and 11 months, [1] [2] with the women feeling ready to accept at an average of 2 years and 7 months.
