Couples who live together may not last

Some scientists say that the premarital cohabitation effect is not a real phenomenon. However, new research says that Tennessee couples could be impacted by it over the long-term. According to the authors of the study, cohabitation before marriage offers a benefit for the first year of marriage. However, it becomes a factor in whether a couple divorces each year thereafter. Other research concluded that this impact would be negated as cohabitation became more common and accepted.

Traffic deaths down in 2017 despite jump in fatal truck accidents

Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians had a somewhat safer year on the roads of Tennessee according to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. After worrisome increases in traffic deaths nationwide in 2015 and 2016, fatalities went down by almost 2 percent in 2017. Drops in deadly passenger car, motorcycle or pedestrian accidents contributed to the improvement, but the number of deadly truck accidents actually went up, and urban areas have surpassed rural areas in traffic deaths.
