Based on the data from Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), this research analyzes the role of marriage in intergenerational economic mobility among the group born in the U.S. in 1950 to 1975. The research shows that the role of marriage is especially significant among the women aged 35 to 42, pointing out the importance of gender and age in the role of marriage. Given that for the younger cohort of women the association between parental income and one’s own income is weaker than for the older cohort, it is supposed that the role of marriage in intergenerational economic mobility is growing.
