In many disciplines, Western methods of conducting research are predominant.  Researchers are overwhelmingly taught Western methods of data collection and study. The increasing participation of indigenous peoples as researchers has brought increased attention to the lacuna in culturally-sensitive methods of data collection. Non-Western methods of data collection may not be the most accurate or relevant for research on non-Western societies. For example, " Hua Oranga " was created as a criterion for psychological evaluation in Māori populations, and is based on dimensions of mental health important to the Māori people – "taha wairua (the spiritual dimension), taha hinengaro (the mental dimension), taha tinana (the physical dimension), and taha whanau (the family dimension)". 
Furthermore, same sex marriages are a violation to religious beliefs and old traditional values that support procreation. Religions like Catholicism promote the creation of offspring freely, but same sex marriages cannot do that. Additionally, it is generally considered a sin by Abrahamic religions to be married to the same sex because of their inability to procreate. Cultural values would be lost as people become too liberal, and the nucleus family image would be a subject in textbooks, but not in practice. This will carry on to the next generation and so fourth until traditional values are forgotten.
