AbstractExamined marital noncohabitation for reasons other than marital discord. Percentage of currently married persons living apart was highest for ages 18-24 and for Blacks. Two most common reasons for living apart were military service and incarceration. Spouses living apart in 1976 were nearly twice as likely as cohabiting spouses to experience marital dissolution within 3 years.
