cohabitation data

via Allen James on his twitter feed, I read this article on the latest (2008) cohabitation data from the Census.

An article in USA Today provides a sampling of data from a new federal study of unmarried young adults, showing that “49% of dating couples and 30% of cohabitors surveyed agree that ‘my religious beliefs suggest that it is wrong for people to live together without being married,’ and “Of those cohabiting, 66% moved in before making plans to marry; 23% planned to marry but weren’t engaged, and 11% moved in when they got engaged.”

go check out the rest of the article for some other interesting nuggets.
