We invite you to join BEROC's open lecture by Lev Lvovskiy   (Ph.D. Candidate in Economics, the University of Iowa) where he will present his research "Mind The Gap: What Explains Changes in the Relative Timing of Marriage and Fertility?"

The typical American family has undergone a dramatic transformation since the 1950s. Marriage and fertility have been delayed, while single-motherhood rates have increased. The link between these facts emanates from the greater delay in marriage than that in first births. As ``the Gap'' between the age at first birth and the age at first marriage becomes negative for some women, out-of-wedlock first births increase. This paper focuses on the increase in income inequality and the decrease in income mobility -- observed across two National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) cohorts of women -- to account for the above facts using an equilibrium two-sided search framework where agents make marriage and fertility choices over the life-cycle.
