In this regard, the authors pose the following objectives: a) to identify the factors destructively affecting the condition of family relationships of migrant workers and divorce trends among labor migrants from Tajikistan to Russia; b) to produce a ranking of these factors; c) to characterize the modern households in Tajikistan. The study clearly states a trend for significant transformation of matrimonial attitude, family relations and sexual behavior in Tajikistan under the influence of intensive labor emigration. Multiple factors of this transformation can be selected. The study revealed several forms of transformation of family relationships, matrimonial attitudes and sexual behavior of migrant workers, which are reflected on families, with possibilities also to reflect on the demographic situation in Tajikistan in not-so-distant future.
