My favorite line in this is “One reason cohabitations were shorter-lived than marriages is that 51 percent of couples who lived together made the transition to marriage within three years, CDC said in a statement.” No, really?
Anyways, discuss 🙂

That seems kinda silly….It seems like that point would be irrelevant if they ended up getting married.

These statistics are always lacking important context. First-time cohabitors in relationships leading to marriage have the exact same divorce rate as married people who never lived together first–instability comes from serial cohabitation. And the people who tend to get married (wealthy, educated people do so in much higher numbers than the poor and uneducated) are already the type of people to form more stable relationships, so the fact that they stay together doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the fact that they married.
Anyway this particular article doesn’t seem to say much of anything at all. Not really groundbreaking. 😉
