Abstract: This chapter presents results of several analyses dealing with the impact of men’s labor migration on their non-­ migrating wives and other household members in rural Armenia. It uses survey and qualitative data to examine the effects of migration on rural households’ attachment to their communities and on left-­ behind wives’ socio-­ psychological wellbeing, sexual and reproductive health, decision-­ making, and social relationships.
