The majority of marriages that took place in the parish of Dobrovice were, endogamous. The proportion of marriages in which at least one of the marrying partners was not a member of the parish of Dobrovice considerably increased within the area of the entire parish. The increased mobility of marrying partners in the village was brought about by their absolution from labour obligations after 1848. The radius in kilometres from which marrying partners came was not of course very large, and the majority of marriages took place within 15 km of the area under observation. The results gathered indicate that mobility preceded marriage and may have been related to work mobility. At the end of the 18th century marrying partners from the middle strata predominated, over the course of the first half of the 19th century the frequency of marriages among the lower strata increased, especially among the landless. Throughout the period, however, the overall character of social homogamy within the area of the parish did not change.
