A Brief History:

A Brief History The phenomena of ‘equallyokedtarianism’ was clearly identified 1st in philosophy and then later in social science about the time of the emergence of the evolving ‘population control’ (one or two children per couple) movement worldwide. The actual term ‘ equallyoked ’* as a social phenomena (i.e., a social mores recognized as two civil identities ‘pairing up’) showed up in 1700s, (China) again in 1800s (Sociocultural Anthropology in Africa), and in the 1900s American Sociology as ‘ reference couples ’ for indices in the Clinical Social Sciences, i.e., Social Psychology research. 1 * Translation of archaic languages were made in vague terms from the philosophies…until the 1960’s when it appears in international social scientific (social psychology) literature. -Social Psychology/SocPsy222

Bias in some form (c) Bias in some form (IBID) *Study, after study, after study, revealed mixed findings-some conclusive and some inconclusive but the consensus is that the equally yoked couples felt discriminated against to about the same degree as did unequally yoked couples. Both equally yoked and unequally yoked reported being ‘avoided’ by others. Both reported incidents of prejudice and bias. To the same extent, both reported having others be blatantly ‘rude’ to them. Equally yoked couples- stereotyping studies are in need of further study. New York, NY, 2001 - Social Psychology: SocPsy707
