47% done with The Russian Peasantry 1600-1930: The World the Peasants Made

Typical family households were multi-generational, in fact in 1823 (and again in 1830) a decree stated households could not split unless the new household could provide 3-4 laborers aged 15-60 – since the decree had to be renewed means it wasn’t followed.

95%-100% of all peasants married, girls 16-18, men 18-20, and had kids right away (avg 18-20).

Landowners did not actually intervene much in peasant marriage.
