Abstract:My study attempts to provide a picture of the relationship between choices about childbearing in Saudi Arabia, the position of certain women in the social structure of Saudi Arabian society, and their family formation attitudes. The assumption of the study was that a woman's social position may affect her attitudes about gender relationships and, in consequence, her fertility behavior outcome may be affected as well. This study is important for Saudi society. A study linking fertility transition and social-structural family formation changes could provide important information and clues as to how these two trends interact, explain variations in the fertility transition within Saudi society, and provide a prior study about how women's social position might serve as a demographic indicator. This study will help in explaining how reproductive roles and attitudes can be explained in more detail, apart from the low status of women in Islam, which many previous studies have focused on. Using the format of focus group interviews as a method, this study gathered qualitative data from married Saudi women in Jeddah, differentiated by level of education, work status, age, and family background. Groups were scheduled for two-hour sessions, 90 minutes for the interview and 30 minutes for the introduction and ending. Interviews were conducted in the places I originally located each group.
