Few studies on Nepal focus on family formation processes. This paper documents the age pattern of marriage and marriage practices in the central hills of Nepal. Socioeconomic differentials in age at marriage and marriage practices are identified and sources of variations are explained. Furthermore the paper concludes that age at marriage and the manner in which marriages are arranged are changing in the study area and probably are changing in other similar settings in Nepal. It is argued that changes in age at marriage and marriage practices are brought about by attitudinal changes which in turn are affected by the broader process of socioeconomic change in the society.
