LIFE partners


Commitments in the housing career (buying a home) are strongly connected with commitments in the household career (marriage and first childbirth). But, although marriage and childbirth have been postponed by recent birth cohorts, this is not true for buying a home. The results of survival analyses show that homes are bought at increasingly younger ages. The growth of home-buying rates is mainly concentrated in the period between first partnership formation and first childbirth. The findings conform with the hypothesis that, rather than buying directly at partnership formation, couples increasingly tend to buy after a few years when they have reached stability in their relationship. An unexpected finding is that the difference in home-buying behaviour between married and cohabiting couples seems to be disappearing.
