But, that point should be balanced with the incredible benefits it has brought to many other children and adults, historically.

In contract, cohabitation is perceived as desirable for some precisely because it is easier exit than marriage.

Even apart from marriage, I believe that a couple that says they have a lifetime commitment together is telling you something important about a strong level of intention and commitment. First, taken with the growing body of research in this area, I think we are seeing cohabitation headed toward becoming more ambiguous than ever regarding commitment.

Similarly, she examined if demographic changes in who cohabits, when, and under what circumstances changed the way cohabitation relates to marriage (e.g., analyzing variables such as race, education, and the presence of children from a prior relationship).

But easier exits, while having some advantages, make it easier to, well, exit, and some couples leave too fast when times are tough, where they otherwise would have recovered and had a better life than they will have apart. I do think an increasing number of people believe marriage is outdated and a piece of paper.

But, as a colleague argued before he passed on (sociologist Steven Nock), in the current environment, marriage is going to become an even stronger marker or signal of high commitment.

The economic incentive may encourage couples that are not really sure about each other's future prospects to shack up for the savings. I've not seen anyone write about this but I'll make this comment here.

And if they still need to live in a roommate situation due to unstable or low-paying sources of income, marriage - or at least a grand wedding - is probably out of the question. 40 years ago, in same conditions, people would have had roommates to handle the financial strain, not romantic partners where things are complicated further by increased odds of having a child.
