This book conclusively shows that marriage and cohabitation are essentially different, and one does not necessarily lead to the other; moreover, cohabitation relationships are fragile and always more likely to break up than marriages, regardless of age or income levels. Contents include: Troubled Relationships. The Outcomes for Children. Living Down to Expectations. Afraid To Love Without A Net. Why Discriminate Against Cohabitation? The Meaning of Marriage.
