Cohabitation

E-mail Print PDF

Cohabitation of the unmarried is a sin. It has increased so rapidly in recent years that the data about it haven't kept pace with the growing numbers, researchers say. The U.S. Census for 2008 reported 13.6 milĀ­lion unmarried, heterosexual couples living together. Researchers say 50% to 60% of couples who marry today lived together first; some note that 70% of young adults will cohabit.

The more religious are less likely to cohabit: 49% of dating couples and 30% of cohabitors surveyed agree that "my religious beliefs sugĀ­gest that it is wrong for people to live together without being married."
