Higher levels of education are typically associated with higher incomes. But transfers within the family may also be an important source of income, especially for women who generally earn less than men in the labor market. This paper uses Swedish data to compute rates of returns to education that incorporate mechanisms operating through the marriage market, i.e., marriage behavior and assortative mating. Positive spousal transfers are most important for women with less than two years of college. For this group, over 80 percent of the overall income returns to higher education operates through the marriage market. Spousal transfers are negative for men, and particularly so for highly educated men.
