Cohabitation and Relationship Quality in Dating and Engaged Couples - 2010 (click here)
Peter J. Larson & David H. Olson
In comparing dating couples living together versus apart, the differences were dramatic. Only 21% of
the dating couples who are living together were Vitalized, compared with 51% of the dating couples
who were not living together. Even more telling, 48% of the cohabiting daters were in the Conflicted
range, compared with only 16% of those who were not living together.
