Revealed Beliefs in the Marriage Market for Young Brides

Abstract:  Rajasthani women typically leave school early and marry young. We develop a novel discrete choice methodology using hypothetical vignettes to elicit subjective beliefs about the evolution of young women's marriage market prospects with age and education. We find parents have a strong preference for delaying a daughter’s marriage until eighteen but no further. Conditional on a marriage match, parents place little intrinsic value on a daughter’s education. However, they believe the probability of receiving a good marriage offer increases strongly with a daughter’s education but deteriorates quickly with her age on leaving school.

The draft of the paper is not ready for posting.
