How partnerships have changed in the UK over the last 30 years

How partnerships have changed in the UK over the last 30 years
Since the 1980s, partnerships where people live together have changed dramatically in the UK. While official registrations of marriages and divorces provide a precise data picture, we don’t know as much about the rising numbers of informal cohabiting partnerships. In particular, we don’t know when these relationships happen or for how long they last.
To explore this, we have used survey data from the UK Household Longitudinal Survey. As separation and living in a partnership without marriage (also known as cohabitation) have become more common, this policy briefing examines recent partnership trends.

Abstract

Since the 1980s, partnerships where people live together have changed dramatically in the UK. While official registrations of marriages and divorces provide a precise data picture, we don’t know as much about the rising numbers of informal cohabiting partnerships. In particular, we don’t know when these relationships happen or for how long they last.
To explore this, we have used survey data from the UK Household Longitudinal Survey. As separation and living in a partnership without marriage (also known as cohabitation) have become more common, this policy briefing examines recent partnership trends.
