Number of Unwed Israeli Live-in Couples More Than Doubles in Last Decade

Report released by the Central Bureau of Statistics indicates that 73,000 unwed couples were living together in Israel in 2011; while the trend is on the rise, it is still much less prevalent than in Europe and the U.S.

The number of unwed Israeli couples living together is growing, according to a Central Bureau of Statistics report released yesterday, although they still constitute only 5 percent of all couples sharing a household.
