Using data from the Netherlands Kinship Panel Study, we investigate the influence of characteristics of the male and female partner in couples and their parents on the distance between the residential location of the couple and of both partners' parents. We find that couples live closer to the man's parents than to the woman's parents. We conclude that the socio-economic position of the man is more dominant in the location choice of couples than that of the woman, but that when the couple has young children, the family ties of the woman seem to gain importance.
