In Jewish Population Studies (World Jewish Population: Trends and Policies) 23, 65-92.This paper has dwelt mainly upon the description of selected aspects of Jewish marriage trends. The data examined consistently point to declines in contemporary Jewish nuptiality. 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.
