Cohabitation in later life has a distinct meaning or aim. Cohabitation serves as a long-term substitute for marriage among elderly persons. Even though older cohabiters are less likely to indicate plans to get married, their relationships are more stable and of higher quality than those of younger cohabiters. Cohabitation in older life tends to be quite steady, lasting on average for almost ten years. Fewer elder cohabiting couples get married and often get separated.
