Feedback at 5:00: Living Together Before Marriage

Posted: Updated:

Experts say more couples are testing the waters before the wedding.

Nearly half of young women say the first time they lived with a man, they were not married.

The findings come from a new government study released today.

It's a big change from 1995 when only 34% said they moved in together.

Around 40% of the women who lived with a guy went on to marry him within 3 years.

For tonight's "Feedback at 5:00," are you living with your significant other, or did you live with your spouse before you got married?
