Schoen, Robert; Weinick, Robin M.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n2 p408-14 May 1993
Examined data from National Survey of Families and Households to examine partner choice in cohabitations and marriages. Results support view of cohabitation as distinct type of relationship from marriage. Compared to recently married persons, cohabitors showed greater propensity to choose partner with same education and lesser propensity to choose partner with same age or religion. (Author/NB)
