  Living in sin 25 November 2004  
What are the reasons for the co-habiting rather than getting married?

Twenty and thirty-somethings call it "living together" but for those now over sixty, it was probably defined in their youth as "living in sin".

Yet it's estimated that four times as many people in this age-group now choose to co-habit rather than get hitched, compared with ten years ago.
Do you think it is OK to live in sin in your sixties? Tell us your views.
