Examining acculturation in mixed-couples to test cultural transmission mechanisms

The aim was to investigate the reasons that underpinned cultural transmission by adapting self-reported methods from cross-cultural psychology and sociology to see the external validity of several constructs from existing evolutionary models. The intended audience consisted of native-foreigner mixed-couples, allowing the analyses to profit from a diverse range of cultural inputs. Validated variables included: contact with a population in which the majority accepts the culture being adopted, the increasing number of relatives from that family, the apparent friendship quality with the companion, affective ties with one's own family, and the desire and emotional components behind the culture transfer motivation were all validating variables. These participants were suggested that they adopted an integrative approach, mixing cultural identities, allowing both cultural identities to blend, but most study so far focuses on assimilation scenarios. Acculturation was found to be flexible and possibly shifting depending on the cultural characteristic being investigated.
