From Home Is Where I Want To Be
Jump to: navigation, search

Interreliance is a distinguishing feature of Vaasith society and culture. More mutual that pyramidal, the notion of interreliance helps create a societal fabric by insisting that people need to rely on others to get things accomplished, while still doing their fair share of work. Unmarried people stay in the households of their own families until they marry. Marriage is considered more from the compatibility of complements than from love, though love is not ignored. When a person does leave the family home to marry, the new couple often settles near one of the parental families to rely on them for help, and provide help of their own. Often, weddings are incredibly large affairs with several couples marrying at once; these couples often settle in a new neighborhood and rely on each other, creating a new community.
