Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article is prepared with polemic heat of argument peculiar to the author: it presents critical evaluation of the regularities revealed in the development of Lithuanian family demography, general demographic context and attempts of several researchers to perceive how our family resonates with the demographic pattern of the European family. Having analysed the concequences of soviet genocide against the Lithuanian nation, the author discovers demographic decline of the Lithuanian nation, including the family. Lithuania lags behind the other European Catolic countries in terms of full-value population reproduction and harmony of marital life. The perspective of family demography is related with the problem of its becoming more scientific (more objective, thorough, and universal analysis). First, one-sided reliance on demographic statistics is to be abandoned, i.e. superficial description of facts on the basis of which trends and regularities are formulated. In discussing the full-value family population reproduction, women fertility, marriage trends, divorce rates, the author reveals the inadequacy of one-sided analysis. In demography it is important to see not only standards of the European family, but patterns of multi-sided demographic analysis as well. Therefore, descriptive family demography is being increasingly replaced by comparative and analytical family demography which is more progressive and perspective than the former one.
