Abstract [en]

Using data from the first round of the national Gender and GenerationsSurveys of Russia, Romania, and Bulgaria, and from a similar survey of Hungary,which were all collected in recent years, we study rates of entry into marital andnon-marital unions. We have used elements from the narrative of the SecondDemographic Transition (SDT) as a vehicle to give our analysis of the data from thefour countries some coherence, and find what can be traces of the SDT in thesecountries. The details vary by country; in particular, latter-day developments inunion formation patterns did not start at the same time in all the countries, but in ourassessment it began everywhere before communism fell, that is, before the societaltransition to a market economy got underway in 1990.
