Abstract:  

Abstract:  This study documents the fact that relative to marriage, cohabitation is popular among two types of couples. For the first type, the two partners have roughly equal potential wages and both prefer cohabitation to marriage, while the second type is featured by two partners with extremely unequal potential wages, of whom the poorer partner wants marriage but the richer partner prefers cohabitation and uses breaking up as a threat in the resulted relationship bargaining. To examine the causal effect of gender-wage equality on cohabitation rates, I construct potential wages using a shift-share algorithm that combines (1) historical industry composition in each commuting zone (CZone) for each sex × race × education × age group, (2) the over-time changes in wage in each industry × occupation cell for each sex × race × education × age group across the US except for the CZone, and (3) the over-time shift in occupation composition within each industry for each sex × race × education × age group across the US except for the CZone. My estimates confirm that a couple’s probability of cohabitation relative to marriage declines first, and then rises as their differences in potential-wage increases.
