Abstract:The Central Kalahari San, living in the central part of Botswana, practise divorce and remarriage frequently. Most people have experienced marriage more than twice in their lives. The rate of polygamous marriage is rather high, and moreover, a kind of love relationship called 'zaku', which is usually openly recognized, is widely seen in this society. Four examples of social clusters united by marriage and other sexual relationships are here examined and analysed to see how those sexual relationships affect interpersonal relations and residential grouping. The information used comes from 6 field surveys carried out by the author between 1967 and 1984. Bibliogr., notes.
