I read an article in the Florida Today newspaper that stated that couples are not opting to get married but rather “cohabit”. At first I thought this was rather odd and surely untrue. Until I remembered, oh yeah, I’m not married. I “cohabit” as well.
According to this article, data released last week by the Census Bureau showed that married couples are now a minority. This is a trend that has been gradually increasing for decades.
This trend is thought to be due to the older population are either widowed later in life or divorced. While younger couples are not focusing on marriage due to career, money etc.
My reason for cohabiting instead of getting married? It’s because it feels like my choice to be with this person and not because I feel like I’m “obligated” to be with them. Are you “cohabiting”? What is your reason?
2 ex’s, 2 dogs and 3 kids later…..Total ramblings that are personal and sometimes even thought provoking.
