The correct answers are: increase; on the decline. Response 1: the Cohabitation is on the rise. In the united States, cohabitation rates have been increasing rapidly in recent decades. Research indicates that couples (among all age groups) are increasingly showing a preference for cohabitation in place of marriage. Cohabitation has become more common recently due to several reasons, including: weaker religious beliefs, where couples are more likely to be intimately involved and to have children when they are unmarried; in order to avoid the financial, emotional, and social consequences of divorce, by avoiding the "latest" commitment of marriage, etc Answer 2: Marriage rates are declining. The main reason why marriage rates in the united States and in other countries is declining is because the divorce rates are the increase of over 50% of marriages end in divorce. In addition, marriage rates are also declining due to an increase in cohabitation, higher rates of financial independence of women and a lack of belief in the institution of marriage, because of the modern beliefs and the weakening of the religious and conventional beliefs.
