The authors studied the familial (marital) state in schizophrenia and manic-depressive psychosis. The marital level in these patients is considered as one of the indices of social adaptation. It was demonstrated that the marital level differs significantly from the general populations in malignant schizophrenia where most of the patients do not marry at all. In other forms of schizophrenia these differences appear to be much less, while some people being not married by 50 years do not differ significantly from the respective indices for the population. In manic-depressive psychosis the differences are less. Among the patients who did get married the age at the time of marriage and the duration of the marriage is comparable with the data on the population and consequently these indices are determined to a large extent by general demographic regularities rather than by the disease.
