Abstract: The study analyses transformation peculiarities of family and marriage relations in a modern Russian family. The research wasaimed at analyzing the results obtained due to representative all-Russian social surveys conducted by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM), Public Opinion Foundation (FOM) and other researchers from 2008-2013. The study considers the following models of family and marriage relations: traditional patriarchal, soviet, sponsorship, bi-career and egalitarianmodels. The average Russian family can not be referred to egalitarian type because in reality a woman’s "double employment" as a main feature of the soviet model still exists in family and marriage relations and the results of representative all-Russian surveys prove that. The author explains that low prevalence of neopatriarchal and bi-career models of family and marriage relations depends on social and economic conditions, as well as on stereotypes and norms of family relations that prevail in collective consciousness. Further, this prevalence will be increasing.
