"Draper and Harpending (1982, J.Anthropol. Res.) proposed that father absence was a critical determinant of later reproductive strategy. Due to learned perceptions about the predictability of the environment, low-income and father-absent families were said to adopt an opportunistically oriented r-strategy of high "mating effort"..... They concluded that "father-present societies are those where most males act like dads and father-absent societies are those where most males act like cads".... In....over 900 16-year-old New Zealand girls....family conflict and father absence in childhood predicted an earlier age of menarche, independent of body weight."
