Abstract
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors that influence attitudes toward premarital cohabitation among unmarried adults. Factors included demographic variables, beliefs about the reasons for cohabitation, self-differentiation, and views about sex

Methods: Data were collected from 238 unmarried adults in their 20s and early 30s in Seoul and the Kyeong-ki area. A frequency analysis, Chi-square test, and logistic regression were carried out using SPSS 23.0.

Results: Adults who were religious were more likely to have negative attitudes toward cohabitation. When subjects believed that people cohabit because they want to test their relationship, answers were more approving about cohabitation. Gender and educational level were not significantly related to the attitudes of cohabitation. When subjects had a higher level of emotional cutoff, they were more likely to have negative attitudes toward cohabitation. More open sexual attitudes predicted positive attitudes toward cohabitation.

Conclusions: The current study adds information to what is known about adult Korean attitudes toward cohabitation. Further investigations are needed.
