5. Marriage and separation risks among German cohabiters: Differences between types of cohabiters1

Marriage seems increasingly decoupled from the childbearing process which suggests that cohabitation becomes more relevant as a permanent alternative to marriage (Heuveline and Timberlake, 2004; Kiernan, 2001; Perelli-Harris et al., 2012).
