The Role of Cohabitation in Declining Rates of Marriage.
Bumpass, Larry L.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n4 p913-27 Nov 1991
Using data from the National Survey of Families and Households, examined characteristics of cohabiting couples, including role of the least educated in leading this trend and presence of children with 40 percent of the couples. Concludes that cohabitation is very much a family status but one in which levels of certainty about the relationship are lower than in marriage. (Author/NB)
