McCabe cites evidence supporting Westermarck’s hypothesis by naming rhesus monkeys as non-human animals that, while preferring close relatives as grooming partners, show sexual avoidance for siblings. Also, in Taiwan, a natural test of the hypothesis is possible due to two types of marriage there; sim-pua, or minor marriage, and major. The minor marriage unites a couple who is as close as brother and sister. The major marriage unites a bridal pair who has not met up to the day of the wedding. Evidence showed that the major generally produced more children and had a lower rate of divorce and/or adultery.

A second case study, often sited in support of Westermark's hypothesis, was published by Arthur Wolf (1995)

The main divisions of philosophy are outlined and discussed.

The author says it would appear that FBD marriages in the Arab Middle East provide evidence to disregard the Westermarck hypothesis of incest (intimate childhood association, with for example, a first cousin, breeds sexual disinterest). However, she then contends that the FBD marriage actually provides evidence that intimate childhood relationships actually do breed sexual disinterest.
