Based on surveys conducted among different ethnic groups in rural and urban settings in peninsular Malaysia in 1981-82, this paper analyses changes in patterns of marriage and household formation among Malays, Chinese, and Indians. Aspects covered include social mixing, before marriage, choice of spouse, comparison of spouses' characteristics. and place of residence after marriage. There are important cultural differences between the main Malaysian ethnic groups in matters related to marriage, but in many important respects, attitudes and practice are tending to converge somewhat. For each ethnic group. however, the timing of marriage still differs. Education is clearly a major influence, but other factors such as degree of freedom in the choice of spouse, age of spouses at the time of marriage, and the prospective place of residence after marriage also have an independent influence.
