This paper examines the migration practices of Romanians mainly originating from urban areas in the Romanian Moldova region. It reports on the first results of a partly quantitative, partly qualitative research on the relationships between work migration and social reproduction of Romanian citizens. It examines especially how different age-groups motivate their work abroad and how they allocate the income earned abroad. It explores the dynamical nature of a household and seeks after the place of ‘going abroad’ in the creation and maintenance of households.
