Smock says many find cohabitation a 'legitimate family form'

a PSC In The News reference

"'The new normal': Cohabitation on the rise, study finds" - NBC News. 04/04/2013.

Pamela Smock comments on research findings that suggest cohabitation is increasingly a common and accepted form of long-term commitment. “One take on these data would be that cohabiting families are choosing to stay together, they are becoming more committed and they are seeing their families, many with children, as a legitimate family form and are feeling less pressure to marry,” Smock says. “It’s the new normal.”
