In this work, we take a forward in time approach to compute the probabilities of non-identity by descent for a population consisting of n sections obeying one of a class of marriage rules that is invariant under cyclical relabeling of sections. A perturbation method allows for exact asymptotics using the reciprocal of the section population as a small parameter. The analysis yields relatedness measures that generalize Wright's F-statistics.
