Do current adolescents’ cohabitation, marriage and parenthood expectations differ by ethnic group? Are differences similar for men and women? Are ethnic differences mediated by individual or parental socio-economic characteristics? This research explores whether family transitions among descendants of post second-world-war immigrants are converging towards those of white British young adults. We do this by examining 16-21 year-olds expectations about living together, marriage and parenthood collected in the Understanding Society household survey.
