Abstract: As a result of rapid industrialization in Southeast Asia, the family stands in need of careful attention. This article examines the family in Thailand by focusing on changes in the living arrangements of never-married women aged 30-34 & 40-44 between the years 1970 & 1990. The living arrangements of these women have been rather stable in the wake of the economic transformation in Thailand. A high proportion continue to live in households with relatives or households headed by relatives. This suggests that the norms that govern familial ties continue to be strong & resilient in Thailand.
