Marital Noncohabitation: Separation Does Not Make the Heart Grow Fonder.
Rindfuss, Ronald R.; Stephen, Elizabeth Hervey
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n1 p259-70 Feb 1990
Examined marital noncohabitation for reasons other than marital discord. Percentage of currently married persons living apart was highest for ages 18-24 and for Blacks. Two most common reasons for living apart were military service and incarceration. Spouses living apart in 1976 were nearly twice as likely as cohabiting spouses to experience marital dissolution within 3 years. (Author/NB)
