This study is devoted to the reconstruction of gender relations in the late Soviet city of Perm. For the younger generation in the modern world, the problem of interpersonal relationships, in particular the issue of marriage and family, is important. Representations about gender relations in modern Russia, in many ways, are inherited from the Soviet era. The official models of behavior and values ​​in the USSR associated with marriage and the creation of a family were often transformed and reflected on the everyday life of the Soviet population. Partial democratization and liberalization of public and political life in the epoch of the "thaw" brought new knowledge and practices to the everyday life of the Soviet population. Under the influence of state policy, the family itself is changing, its structure is fixed, relations between the husband and wife are changing towards more equal. The change in housing policy becomes the basis for a clear division into private and public space. The subsequent Soviet period of "stagnation", characterized as a period of relative social stability in the life of society, is already a period with formed ideas about the ideals, norms and practices of premarital and family life. As a result, it is possible to analyze already well-established ideas about the family in this period.
