Norval D. Glenn Comments on
Marriage and Cohabitation

by Arland Thornton, William Axinn, and Yu Xie
Published by University of Chicago Press, 2007

"Impressive . . . family demographers will find it invaluable, and other kinds of scholars and researchers will find it very useful. The authors point out that the predictors of entering into cohabitation and marriage are different, and they discuss how cohabitation may affect decisions about marriage. . . . The research reported here is important."
