    Using data from ESS 2006 the paper investigates to what extent the family trajectories have changed across generations and how these developments correspond to changes in socially established norms about family transitions. Our results show that corroborate the assumption of an increasing restandardisation of family lives. Even though family trajectories have become more turbulent, new stages such as unmarried cohabitation are turning into majority behaviour. The liberalisation in norms appears to precede changes in actual demographic behaviour, even though European countries differ in the degree and pace of these changes. degree and pace to which such normative and behavioural changes have yet taken place.
