|Among the young adults who are religious and pledge to be sexually abstinent, premarital sex continues;
that is with avoiding sex yet and only having premarital sexual relations with the one who they would
marry. Uecker, J. E. (2008). Religion, Pledging, and the Premarital Sexual Behavior of Married Young
Adults. Journal of Marriage and Family, 70(3), 728-744

Outcome in 417 Patients. Journal of Sexual Medicine, 5(12), 2895-2903.
How does inter-racial and inter-ethnic marriages affect fertility? It does not affect fertility for cohabiting
black-white, mexican-white, and puerto rican-white marriages. The fertility is reported to be reduced,
however, among Chinese-White and Asian Indian-White unions. Fu, V. K. (2008). Interracial-Interethnic
Unions and Fertility in the United States. Journal of Marriage and Family, 70(3), 783-795.
Married mothers have better prenatal health behaviors. Physical abuse and conflict in relationship,
however, can lead to health behaviors that are poor prenatally; see Kimbro, R. T. (2008). Together
Forever? Romantic Relationship Characteristics and Prenatal Health Behaviors. Journal of Marriage and
Family, 70(3), 745-757.
Given life background differences, do step fathers and cohabiting partners provide better parenting than
biological fathers? see Berger, L. M., Carlson, M. J., Bzostek, S. H., Osborne, C. (2008). Parenting Practices
of Resident Fathers: The Role of Marital and Biological Ties. Journal of Marriage and Family, 70(3), 625-639.
Woman with mental illness who have children prior to marriage are likely to marry within 5 years when
compared to woman without mental illness; see Teitler, J. O. and Reichman, N. E. (2008). Mental Illness as
a Barrier to Marriage Among Unmarried Mothers. Journal of Marriage and Family, 70(3), 772-782.
Both male and female earnings are more related to woman spending them on doing female things; see
Treas, J. and Ruijter, E. De (2008). Earnings and Expenditures on Household Services in Married and
Cohabiting Unions. Journal of Marriage and Family, 70(3), 796-805.
Childhood cohabitation can inhibit of later sexual interest both in animals and in humans; called the
'Westermarck effect', "brother–sister" incest is prevented in this way. Social familiarity can inhibit
reproductive behavior even after being separated or when isolated. With new partners, on the other
hand, there is more aggression and low affiliation like behavior-- but high reproductivity between them;
because there might had been previous kinship between the new partner and childhood cohabitant with
whom there is reproductive inhibition. The less friendly interaction can inhibit the inhibition of
reproductive behavior that was due to the mere perception of familiarity between the new partner and old
childhood cohabitant, even when there was no familiarity; see Busquet, N., Nizerolle, C. L. and Feron, C.
(2008). What Triggers Reproductive Life? Effects of Adolescent Cohabitation, Social Novelty and
Aggression in a Monogamous Mouse. Ethology, 115(1), 87-95.
In married couples, following betrayal, betrayor's appeasement can lead to the betrayed forgiving and
resolution. PEGGY A. HANNON, CARYL E. RUSBULT, ELI J. FINKEL, and MADOKA KAMASHIRO (2010, May
2010). In the wake of betrayal: Amends, forgiveness, and the resolution of betrayal. Personal
Relationships, 17(2), 253-278.
Those who receive premarital prevention and therapy are significantly better in the long-term, after the
wedding, compared to 79% of couples who do not receive the interventions. The short term effects
include better interpersonal skills and quality of the relationship. Carroll, J. S. and Doherty, W. J. (2003).
