During the 40 years of the Journal of Comparative Family Studies the social institution of marriage has subsequently all over the Western world split up into three varieties: the traditional marriage is still there and now we also have non-marital cohabitation as well as LAT relationships (Living Apart Together). In this article the changes are presented together with an analysis of what has happened not only descriptively but also theoretically. It is also claimed that we hardly can predict any long run changes but we might be able to predict short run changes of the social institutions of marriage and its parallels.
