Women employment and maintaining the balance between work and family life is a key issue in the modern society where adult worker families are replacing the traditional model of the working father and the housewife mother. Because of different expectations men and women are educated and oriented differently which impacts their economic status. We wanted to see how marriage influence their path to labor force participation In this article we explore women labor force participation and inactivity, with a special focus to married women and the effect that marriage has in labor status. Another issue we want to highlight is the relationship between inactivity and care services for children, disabled and elderly. We had used the data of Labor Force Survey in Albania 2007-2013. We have found a clear relation between women low rates of economic engagement and the care services availability and accessibility.
