1) The monogamous spousal function for all people, where unmarried people are treated as their own spouse.

The spouse, $$s$$, of my spouse, $$z_1$$ is me, $$z_0$$.

2) The a mother, $$a$$, of only children, $$c$$, where $$g$$ is the firstborn and $$h$$ the last.

About 2 - it looks like the morphisms g and h should really be the same morphism, is there a way to show this? If we had a reverse morphism $$f^{-1}: b \to a$$, such that $$f \cdot f^{-1} = id_b$$ then this would follow naturally, but we don't. We just have some image of a, $$f: a \to Im(a)$$, in b. So basically we are saying that this equality holds only for a subset of b, other entries may have different outcomes from g and h.

EDIT: got it, if a contains mothers with a single child, and b is the set of all mothers, then $$f.g = f.h$$, but in general, for other mothers, the first child and the last are not equal.
