This is the final published version of a working paper that has been published in its final definitive form by CESifo, 2019.

For re-use rights please refer to the publisher's terms and conditions.


Using an equilibrium model of inter-linked frictional labour and marriage markets, we establish the existence of male marriage premium within a given productivity group, as well as a clear ranking of premia across different groups. We find supporting evidence using Chinese data.
