I don't think there is data in China

But I believe there was a recent study in the U.S. that compared couples who actually moved in and lived with  each other before marriage, to those who did not, and the divorce rate for the first group is like twice that of the latter.  So empirically it appears that cohabitation is bad if you want the marriage to be longlasting.

It makes sense too.  The concept of a seven-years' itch is that eventually people get tired of each other if they live together.  If it takes n- years for that to happen, the earlier you move in just means that the earlier you get to that line, while the bond of marriage is not as tight (it takes time for that to develop).

But then if you just want the benefits of cohabiting (usually free sex), that's a different calculus.
