Number of cohabiting families continues to rise

There are now 2.9 million families in the UK where opposite sex couples are unmarried, reports The Family Law Hub. This is an increase of 700,000 when compared with 2003 and makes it the fastest growing family type. 1.2 million of these families have dependent children.
