Demographic changes have taken place in many countries over the past two centuries. They have become the consequences of changes in the family ideas and value system. Changes in marital behavior have also happened in Russia. Regions of the North Caucasian Federal District which still seems to be the stronghold of the traditional robust and patriarchal family are of particular interest in this regard. However, family relations in the North Caucasus Federal District are simultaneously influenced by archaization and modernization: marriage practices that have become a thing of the past in the Soviet period are being revived, and the convergence between the Caucasus and Russia is taking place. Young people have the opportunity to adopt the patterns of behavior of Western European society, as well as the countries of the Middle East, with the development of the Internet and social networks. The transformation of gender relations and the greater freedom of women oriented towards education and career has an impact on marriage relations. A study of statistics for the period from 2001 to 2020 demonstrates a shift in demographic behavior. The rapid growth in the number of marriages begins in 2001, with a slight increase in divorce rates until 2010, and then a decrease in the marriage rate occurs with a continued increase in the divorce rate. It can be assumed that the demographic situation will continue to develop according to the same scenario, taking into consideration the complicated situation with unemployment among young people in the region.
