The contexts of partnership and childbearing as determinants of union stability : a quantitative analysis on western and eastern German partnerships with data from the German Family Panel

Universität Rostock, 2015

Abstract: This dissertation analyzes the union stability of western and eastern German couples with children based on detailed retrospective data. The results of this study show that the majority of the mothers were not married at the time of the conception of the first child, but especially western German mothers tended to marry thereafter. The most important finding of this study is that eastern and western German parents do not differ in their union stability, despite the different contexts in which they live.
