Marriage and Cohabitation Following Premarital Conception.
Manning, Wendy D.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n4 p839-50 Nov 1993
Considered role of cohabitation in legitimation of premarital conceptions using data from 920 women. Found that, for white women in their twenties, pregnant cohabiting women were more likely to legitimate their first birth. Among black women and teenage white women, pregnant cohabiting women were no more likely to marry before their child was born than were single women. (Author/NB)
