Martin K. Whyte Comments on
Marriage and Cohabitation

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

"Over the last half century, premarital cohabitation has gone from being a rarity to a majority experience. Using a rich set of data to understand the dramatic transformation of marriage, Thornton, Axinn, and Xie display an unusual mix of historical sensitivity and statistical rigor, and the result is an authoritative account of the shape and meaning of this fundamental change in how we Americans form our unions."
