UVA Study: The Risks to Children from Cohabitation

NPR had a story today about the most recent research from UVA's National Marriage Project.  It reports that cohabitation is not good for children even as the percentage of children born into homes where the parents are not married has risen to 42%.  According to the report, "research shows the children of cohabiting parents are at risk for a broad range of problems, from trouble in school to psychological stress, physical abuse and poverty."
