Discuss how these social institutions interact with each other. You can start the discussion from yourself as a senior school student. And move on to how you are shaped by different social institutions. Are you entirely controlled or can you also resist and redefine social institutions?

Solution: Marriage, family, and kinship, as well as politics, education, economy, and religion, all interact and influence one another.

Religion, for example, had a significant impact on several aspects of people’s social and cultural lives, including family, marriage, kinship, and education. Religious organisations were so powerful that they had an impact on society’s political and economic structures.

Religion gave way to capitalism and occupied the most powerful place in society. Religion, on the other hand, has been less significant in modern communities. However, it continues to maintain sway over marriage, family, kinship, and politics.

Even in modern nations, religion has an impact on family, kinship, and marriage. Similarly, the state’s economic and political policies have an impact on the family and marriage. The functions of family members are also indirectly determined by governmental policy, resulting in family fragmentation.

These institutions provide many new opportunities, but some also place restrictions on individuals. Resisting and redefining any social institution is tough, but it is possible through social movements and protests.
