Marriage (Key Concepts)

Hopefully a fairly visual grid of definitions for monogamy, serial monogamy, polygamy, polygyny, polyandry and bigamy, which are key concepts for the AQA SCLY1 Families and Households Unit.

These come from the topic area of marriage, cohabitation, divorce, separation and childbearing.

This is a nice thing to print off, cut out and stick up on your bedroom wall along with lots of mindmaps and stimulating and concise revision materials - subliminal revision - sad I know, but unfortunately this is exactly the sort of passive revision that you should be doing alongside more active revision techniques.
