Abstract: This article examines the determinants of the timing and prevalence of female marriage in a sample of 33 rural villages in the French department of the Loire in the second half of the nineteenth century when the area was beginning to experience a demographic transition. Data from 1851 and 1891 are used in the analysis. The conclusions reached are that both timing and prevalence tended to be determined by similar factors Marriage chances were structured by demographic factors, with mortality in 1851 and the sex… Show more

“…a surplus of immigrants coming into the community, as well as high levels of mobility in communities should expand possibilities for finding a suitable marriage partner, some studies have indicated that migration resulted in a higher age at marriage due to time needed for adaptation to a new environment (Alter, 1998;Lynch, 1991;Oris, 2000). However, other studies do confirm the hypothesis that individuals that stay behind in often isolated rural communities face serious forbearance or even aquittance of marriage due to the unavailability of eligible marriage partners (Engelen & Kok, 2003;Gjerde & McCants, 1999;Lehning, 1988). As the former mechanism points primarily at an individual and the second more at a contextual impact, we expect the timing of marriage to be differentially affected by own migration and living in a community with a large migration surplus or a high mobility level.…”
