Recent Trends in Jewish Marriage

By Sergio DellaPergola

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1989

In Occasional Papers 1989-07. This paper has dwelt mainly upon the description of selected aspects of recent Jewish marriage trends. Demographically, the data examined consistently point to declines in contemporary Jewish nuptiality. Although conclusions drawn from period measures can only be provisional, based on the available evidence, it seems most likely that future percentages of definitive singlehood connected with non-marriage or with marriage disruption will be higher among Jewish populations than those observed in the past - unless a dramatic reversal in the present trends occurs.
