In the paper authors first review the overall situation in the study of stratification of the Slovak society. After introducing objective and subjective measures of social stratification, they focus on subjective placement in the stratification system of men and women. Inspired by previous research in western societies they try to establish how important the characteristics of a respondent's partner are for his or her subjective placement in the stratification system of society. The authors measure subjective placement using two scales – a named class scale and a free top to bottom scale to conclude, that the scale using class names increases the measured influence of education and type of work. This difference is attributed to class labels (e.g. working class), which implicate certain education levels and type of employment. When comparing the subjective placement of men and women they find, in accordance with previous findings from other countries, that women in Slovakia generally take into account the characteristic of their partners (sharing model) compared to men, who usually do not use partner's characteristic when placing themselves within the stratification system (independence model). By comparing their results from 2001 and 2008 data the authors find a modest shift in the subjective placement of women towards the independence model in 2008.
