Abstract

The state usually is assigned primacy in sociological discussions of sanctioning. 1 However, it is crucial to understand that the family also plays a major role in social sanctioning and that the state and the family are interrelated sanctioning systems. In many ways legal sanctions act as a subset of social sanctions enforced by the authority of government within the larger social system that includes the family. Thus legal and social sanctions are connected in a variety of ways, sometimes opposing and sometimes reinforcing one another.
