Another sad statistic on the family

They mentioned on The Today Programme on R4 today that:

More than 3/4s of all married couples in the UK today are known to have lived together for a period of time before marriage.

Perhaps one might expect the figure to be more like 90%? Not sure what counts as "living together for a period of time". Presumably staying over in the same bed a few times doesnt count!?

Good to be bucking a bad trend - if chewing the carpet... 24 days to go, I think.
