Examined childbearing behavior of approximately 733 black and 2,986 white cohabiting and married women at 2 stages in marital life course. Found that, for both first unions and first postmarital unions, rate of childbearing within cohabitation more closely approximated rate of childbearing within legal marriage among black women than white women.
