Informal Unions among Mainland Puerto Ricans: Cohabitation or an Alternative to Legal Marriage?
Landale, Nancy S.; Fennelly, Katherine
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n2 p269-80 May 1992
Examined meaning of informal unions among mainland Puerto Rican women. Compared characteristics of women in informal unions to those of single and married women; assessed whether Puerto Rican women defined their informal unions as nonmarital cohabitation or form of marriage; and examined predictors of women's definitions of informal unions. Found informal unions more akin to marriage than singlehood. (Author/NB)
