The matriarchal family means a system where women have power in all activities relating to allocation, exchange and production, as well as sociocultural and political. This exists in the state of Meghalaya. Here a boy has to go to live with his wife's family after marriage . But at present this type of traditions are gradually losing importance..!

Matriarchy is a society in which females, especially mothers, have the central roles of political leadership, moral authority, and control of property. It is also sometimes called a gynarchy, a gynocracy, a gynecocracy, or a gynocentric society. The term for males is patriarchy, but it is not exactly a parallel term.
