Description This text is concerned with ethnic homogamy in Slovakia. The authors depart from the assumption that ethnic homogamy is an indicator of ethnic tolerance and multiculturalism. Higher ethnic homogamy indicates larger social distances between ethnic groups, and vice versa. The authors analyze data from the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic. The data include all marriages according to the ethnicity of the spouses in Slovakia between 1992 and 2012. The authors test hypotheses of the trends in both absolute and relative ethnic homogamy. The conclusions show that the norm of ethnic homogamy strongly structures marriages in Slovakia. The probability of ethnically heterogamous marriage varies among particular ethnic groups; however, it does not increase for any of the ethnic groups over the analyzed period. The members of particular ethnic groups have not come socially closer together, inter-ethnic distances have not decreased due to the marriages.
