The transition into adulthood may differ depending on cultural traditions and rites of passage from adolescence to adulthood. The transition into adulthood is also a time for relationships and romance from a normative perspective, though this, too, will vary across cultures. In this week’s discussion, consider cultural variation in relationships and rites of passage and their relationship to normative developmental milestones.

In your post, be sure to address the following:

  • Research and describe two unique rites of passage to adulthood from a culture other than your own. Explain their impact on normative development in the context of that culture.
  • Summarize the different types of attraction presented in this week’s readings, and explain how these manifest differently or lead to different relationship outcomes based on their cultural context and norms. For example, are there cultures in which a particular type of attraction may not serve a young person well?

In your response to your peers, offer additional insight on the discussed rites of passage. Be sure to support your perspectives with scholarly research.
