The choice between unregistered cohabitation and marriage can be analyzed as an outcome of the process of decision making.
The choice between marriage and cohabitation is based on the evaluation of union types.
The same also applies to cohabitation and marriage, gender cannot distinguish cohabiting and married people; in spite of this, the intentions to marry or cohabite could be different according to gender.
The low income of couples may also reduce the possibility of registering cohabitation, though the wish to marry exists (Cherlin 2004, Smock et al.
However since the period of pre-marital cohabitation is included as belonging to the marriage duration, this would only occur if the couple had children but were not cohabiting, and later married and had one or more additional children.
However with no additional information on cohabitation we are unable to make assumptions as to whether individuals in this category have in fact experienced multipartner fertility or not.
The lack of information on cohabitation was an important limitation in this study and it has implications for the interpretation of results.
21) It is also possible that multi-partnered fertility was over-estimated due to the way in which pre-marital cohabitation information was collected.
To explore this possibility, we examined the frequency with which marriages and cohabitations begin in the same year as a child is born.
Exceptions include Schoeni (1995), who finds no effect of cohabitation on earnings in Germany; Loh (1996), Stratton (2002), and Bardasi and Taylor (2004), who conclude that any effect of cohabitation is transitory; and Cohen (2002) and Richardson (2003), who find that cohabiting men receive a smaller premium than married men.
Finally, while there is little evidence that fatherhood influences wages in the United States, it may be the case that becoming a father is a more significant turning point in the lives of Danish men than either marriage or cohabitation.
In addition, as individuals are not directly asked the nature of their relationship with nonmarital partners, cohabitation is measured with some error.
The 19% involved in long-term cohabitations (longer than three years) by comparison account for about 52% of the time cohabited.
Finally, distinguishing between cohabitations that did and did not end in marriage did not improve the fit of the cross-section model but did improve the fit of the panel model, with time spent in cohabitations that did not end in marriage having an effect of approximately the same magnitude as time spent in marriages, possibly because individuals who maintained long-term cohabitating relationships use cohabitation as an alternative to marriage.
Recognizing that cohabitations would likely be underreported, the NSFH was designed to "maximize the completeness of reporting" (Bumpass and Sweet, 1989, 617).
