In the 90´s, marriage rate dropped in the Czech Republic. Based on representative surveys of Czech population from 2005, we analyze reasons behind such behaviour and test Hoffmann-Nowotny’s hypothesis claiming that low first marriage rate is driven by low fertility rate. Whenever young people start making plans on a family, there tends to be a marriage plan. Where the idea of a family is distant to them, marriage seems unattractive. Unmarried parents are the only exception.
