According to a recent study into the relative health benefits of cohabitation and marriage, researchers came to a surprising conclusion. People who choose to live together without marrying may be more happy and healthy and have better social ties than married couples.
In our previous post, we began discussing the difficulty cohabiting couples have in the event of separation, not only emotionally and socially, but also financially.
The common assumption about cohabiting is that it is a convenient way of testing-driving a relationship prior to marriage or a way to avoid legal entanglements in case the relationship fails. But increasingly, these assumptions are proving to be untrue.
