Nuptial and cohabitation agreements
Prior literature examines the puzzling empirical regularity that premarital cohabitation is associated with higher divorce rates. Since cohabitation should yield improved match-quality information, one might expect the opposite. This result, and its recent weakening, have been explored empirically and produced theoretically using matching models. In this paper, we develop an intra-household bargaining model of alternative dating and cohabitation paths to marriage in which higher relationship exit costs for cohabitors relative to daters generates the observed higher divorce rate.
We also show that asymmetric exit costs can produce rejection and generate exits that would not otherwise occur. In addition, we show that even when cohabitors have lower average marriage quality, expected utility for a given match quality is higher, and some utility enhancing marriages that would not have taken place without cohabitation will occur in its presence. The Journal of Population Economics is an international quarterly that publishes original theoretical and applied cohabitation game and survey articles on topics dealing with broadly defined relationships between economic and demographic problems.
Both extensive surveys of wider areas and shorter reviews of important new developments are considered.
Appropriate microlevel topics may cover household behavior, including household formation, fertility choices, education, labor supply, and migration; macrolevel topics may deal with economic growth with exogenous or endogenous population evolution, population policy, savings and pensions, social security, housing, and health care. Economic approaches to biology, studies dealing with the interrelation between population dynamics and public choice and research on the impact of population on the distribution of income and wealth are of interest.
Papers dealing with policy issues and development problems are also being solicited if they deal with population issues.
