This paper reports a study of marital rates in a group of the first-break schizophrenia patient followed up over II) wars and examines the various factors related to marriage. A high rate, 70% of the patients married and X0% of the marriages were intact at follow up. Less men got married and more women had broken marriages especially if they were childless. A relapsing course of illness was associated with a ' 'never married " stale, and occupational stability in men seemed to determine their getting married after the onset of illness.
