Far from being a mirror-image of marriage, cohabitation turns out to be something fundamentally different. It is very fragile. Cohabitating relationships are more likely to fracture than marriages entered into at the same time. It is no longer true that people cohabit until children come along and then tie the knot. Cohabitations with children are more likely to fragment than childless ones. Couples who have children and then marry are more likely to divorce than couples who have children within marriage.
