Center for Demographic and Family Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “Long-Term Cohabitation Among Unwed Parents: Determinants and Consequences for Children,” by Ryan Heath Bogle (2012-12, August 2012, .pdf format, 33p.).

Abstract:

Though a great deal of prior research has examined the stability of cohabiting unions and child wellbeing in cohabiting unions, little research has attempted to integrate these two concepts. Using 4 waves of the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study, I examine the determinants of long-term cohabitation among a recent group of unwed parents, and the consequences of different stable unions (marriage and cohabitation) for child wellbeing. Results indicate that relationship quality is the key determinant to both long-term cohabitation and marriage among unwed parents. Moreover, there are only slight negative implications for children raised in long-term two-biological-parent cohabiting relative to stable two biological married parent families. It appears that long-term cohabitation presents a viable family structure for children.
