Abstract

Delayed marriages played a very important role in slowing down population growth during the European Demographic Transition. Similarly, some developing countries have recently undergone even more rapid changes in marriage patterns, leading to declining levels of fertility. Curtailing marriage or entry into sexual unions is one of the "positive" checks posited by Malthusian theory and is worthy of some renewed attention because of the lack of decline in marital fertility in Pakistan.
