Family and Domestic Life: Before they were refugees, the women often lived with their extended families in villages in Bhutan. Like many Americans, married couples may have lived close to other relatives such as their parents and siblings. However, civil conflict and the resettlement process can often cause fragmentation of family. When moving, it is Bhutanese culture for women to go with their husbands, while her other family members may be resettled somewhere else - sometimes not in the same city or even country.
