I have to agree with you Janet, being in 'small rural villages' is no
protection against human passions and attractions. I was in one
remote native village in Alaska, perhaps with 150 population, and
there was one elder addressed by everyone as 'grandpa'. Everyone in
the village knew he stood a good chance of being their grandpa.
Evidently he was quite a lover in the village in earlier decades.
Marriage has a nice way of legitimizing things. I have always
wondered that we do not have a matriarchal family name system rather
Looking at a film in one Slovak village it seems the illegitimate
children ran strongly in one family. I always wanted to meet some of
the women in the family and see what attraction / morality might be
