More couples living together instead of marrying

Posted: Updated:

Is living together the new marriage for women?

According to a new survey it is.

The National Center for Health Statistics, which is part of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says nearly half of women aged 15 to 44 years old "cohabitated" outside of marriage between 2006 to 2010.

That's compared with 43% in 2002.

The report is based on interviews with more than 12-thousand women in that age group.

The study's lead author says some of the reasons more people are living together is a delay in the age at which people are marrying and couples waiting for improved financial stability.
