Did you live with your spouse before getting married?
If so, you’re not alone.
More and more Americans are choosing to live together before getting married. According to a CDC study, 48% of women interviewed between 2006 and 2010, ages 15 to 44, had cohabitated with their significant other. This trend has been on the rise, so it’s not surprising.
