jeremy-wong-weddings-592565-unsplashPROJECT: How do young families appear and live in modern Russia? Comparison of secular families and priests’ families.

FUNDING: within the framework of the program of PSTGU Development Foundation in 2018-2021

PROJECT COORDINATOR: Ivan Pavlyutkin

RESEARCH TEAM: Mariia Goleva, Olga Borisova, Alena Klestova

DURATION OF THE PROJECT: 2018 – 2021

ABOUT THE PROJECT
The research project is aimed at studying the creation and the first years of family life of priests and laymen. The need for such investigation on young families, marriage mating, wedding and difficulties the families face in the beginning of family life could be explained by the instability of marriage, the growth of cohabitation and a high divorce rate in the first years of family life in modern Russia. The initial years of family life for newlyweds are accompanied by questions about the birth of children, work-family balance, daily difficulties, etc. Also it is necessary to illuminate the specificity of the priests’ families as the priesthood determines their family and marital life.

METHODOLOGY
The methodology of the research project involves the collection of in-depth interviews with newlyweds (both spouses). The sample includes several groups of families: parochial families, priestly families, non-religious families (secular marriage). In addition, a control group of priestly families with a long duration of marriage will be taken. The implementation of the project involves the preparation of reviews on key theoretical concepts (attitudes, humility, fidelity, etc.) and on empirical studies on young families’ life. As the results of the study, it is planned to prepare academic publications, reports at conferences, recommendations on family policy for the state and the church.
