The authors observe the zadruga phenomenon as a dynamic process, depending on the internal as well as the external socio-economic factors, and provide a comparative insight into the zadruga phenomenon in two branches of the same subethnic group, which largely reflects the historical and social circumstances in which such a family lifestyle existed and was transformed. The authors pay attention to the influence of common law, which had a great importance in preserving specific features of family life, despite the strong influence of historical, socio-political, ecological and economic factors on the Bunjevci family life structure in the final stage of the existence of the zadruga.
