Cohabitation rates are on the rise.
A survey out today shows nearly half of young women say the first time they lived with a guy they weren't married.
That's a drastic change from two decades ago when only 34-percent said they moved in together.
In 1995 - 39 percent married first.
Now - it's just 23 percent.
Experts say the numbers show living together is a testing ground.
40 percent of women surveyed who lived with a guy went onto marry him within three years.
