1. Introduction In order to gain insight into situation in Montenegro regarding the relevant topics which this research deals with, data from 2011 Census of Population, Households and Flats in Montenegro will initially be shown, that is, the data on education, activities and employment of citizens aged 15+ years. Considering that the accent of the study was on the young, aged from 15 to 30 years, data for this age category will be singled out. According to 2011 Census of Population, total population of Montenegro counts 620 029, while number of population aged 15+ years adds up to 501 278. 21,4% of total population (or 132 702) are the young, from 15 to 29 years of age: 51,4% (68 198) are young male citizens and 48,6% (64 504) are young female citizens.

While in 1980 even a quarter of women got married between 15 and 19 years, and almost half of them between 20 and 24 years, these percents are significantly lower in 2011, but still higher than percents for men. In 2011, 8% of women got married between 15 and 19 years, and one in three women between 20 and 24 years. On the other hand, in male population, changes were not detected when it comes to the age group 15 to 19, while there has been a change in the age group between 20 and 24 years: in year 1980 one third of men got married at this age, while that percentage
