Example text

Ancestor worship gave powerful support to filiality, for when expressed religiously it was shown to be uninterrupted by death. Thus family division, especially while the parents were still alive, was considered to go against Confucian ethics, for it was widely understood that most parents would want their families to remain intact. Nevertheless, early family division was common, especially among the nonelite. However, even after division sons would continue to support their parents, and it is therefore important to distinguish family division as a structural factor from the unending obligations of the young toward the old.

The father's position of authority was assured from the moment he began to head an independent family unit, but his wife would obtain a degree of authority in her own right only after the passage of many years. Her position was weakest when she was still childless (sonless); it improved when she bore a son; it grew even stronger when a daughter-in-law came under her direction; and by the time she entered into advanced age her authority began to approximate that of her husband, especially in peasant families; if his was the earlier death, full power within the family might sometimes then be in her hands.

The Impact of Collectivization on Family Organization Due to collectivization, which transformed rural China's population into wage earners, the farming family largely lost its status as a production enterprise; the old relationship between family size and family wealth no longer applied, for there was no longer the possibility that larger family holdings would encourage brothers to stay together under their father's authority as one family. Brothers therefore tended to separate from their parents shortly after marriage, often being constrained (usually for a relatively short period) only by the cost and availability of new housing, although it is true that the parents frequently continued to live with one of their married sons (or, if they had none, with a daughter).
