Bigenerational polygamy was present as an application of the mono-marital principle.Let us consider a family in which the mother died before the son was married.In Goldstein's research about the Gyantse district specifically, he found them owning typically from 20 acres (81,000 m) of land each.
Even though it is currently illegal, after collective farming was phased out and the farmed land reverted in the form of long-term leases to individual families, polyandry in Tibet is de facto the norm in rural areas.The "mono-marital principle" dictates that for each and every generation, one and only one marriage is permitted collectively among all the male siblings, and the children born out of this marriage are members of the family unit who have full legal rights.The family organization was based on these two patterns to avoid the partitioning of their estates.Tibetan inheritance rules gave all males of the family, the right to claim a part of the family estate, so if each son took a different bride, there would be different conjugal families, and this would lead to the partitioning of the land among the different sons' families.
To avoid this situation, the solution was a fraternal polyandrous marriage, where the brothers would share a bride.
Professor Melvyn Goldstein believed this affected Tibet's traditional marriage system.
