We're All 'Shacking Up'

Turns out we're all doing it. 

More women are living with a partner before they get married, according to a new report by the National Center for Health Statistics.

Nearly half of women (48 percent) between the ages of 15 and 44 lived with a partner before getting married between the years of 2006 and 2010, an 11 percent jump since 2002

According to the report, 1-in-5 women became pregnant during their first year of premarital cohabitation and 40 percent of first marital cohabitations transitioned to marriage within three years.
