Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080240216X, Paperback)

Cohabitation is hands-down the fastest growing family form in the United States and most Western nations. Most of these couples view the arrangement as a step toward marriage, or as a substitute for marriage. But does living together truly give people what they are longing for? Author Glenn Stanton offers a compelling factual case that nearly every area of health and happiness is increased by marriage and decreased by cohabitation.

How can young couples determine if moving in together is a wise move?  With more than half of American women now cohabitating sometime in their adult lives, pastors and counselors need to be prepared to advise young adults with factual and scriptural truth. With credible data and compassion, Stanton explores the reasons why the cohabitation trend is growing; outlines its negative outcomes for men, women and children; and makes a case for why marriage is still the best arrangement for the flourishing of couples and society. 

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:12:13 -0400)

Stanton cites a wealth of research that looks at the effects of cohabitation and marriage, and finds that science supports the biblical view of the importance of marriage.
