Summary/Abstract: A series of data indicates characteristic traits of contracting marriages or nuptiality, based on which a situation in the village of Lokve can be reported as well as similarities and differences in relation to other settlements in Banat. In the first part of the paper an analysis of global indicators of Lokve nuptiality is made. The average age of men and women at the time of contracting their first marriage is analysed and their place within HEINAL's typology of nuptiality has been set. The paper tries to define the position of this settlement within the widely accepted classification of nuptiality into the European and non-European model and indicates a great connection between demographic development of these areas and European demographic development, which emphasizes affiliation to the same cultural sphere. In addition to analysis of the first marriage average age, average age at the time of contracting higher order marriages has been analysed too, as well as relation between the first order marriages and higher order marriages, fluctuation of annual number of marriages, nuptiality rates, monthly fluctuation of number of marriages, phenomenon of isonomy and geographical origin of spouses.
