As Marina Kiblitskaya (2000b) has argued, the ideology of the male breadwinner was preserved in Soviet society because, although men were rarely the sole earners in families (Soviet wage scales assumed dual-income families), they tended to earn more than women. Thus, the breadwinner (kormilets) in Russian household is the person who earns the highest income—a view confirmed by statistical analysis of what gave respondents in the 1998 ISITO household survey the status of breadwinner in the eyes of other household members (Kozina, 2000).

10 Here I develop this analysis further on the basis of an examination of all the cases of ‘failed male breadwinners’ in our data at the final stage of the research. 11 Analysis of all the interviews with the respondents concerned revealed that the failure of men to conform with local norms did not automatically lead to tension, though it did carry such a risk. Overall, in eight of the cases it appeared to lead to strain (five of the cases involving our female respondents, and half of those involving male respondents).
