The emergence of the non-familial coresidential partnerships from the developing world has generated profound subjective wellbeing implications. This paper provides insights that non-familial coresidential living arrangements have generated lower life satisfaction. We find that the interactions between marriage and non-familial coresidential living arrangements have significant impacts on subjective wellbeing, and such effects differ by migration and occupation types. Findings of this study suggest the importance of conceptualizing the social dependant nature of non-familial coresidence and marriage as is subjectively experienced by residents with different demographic characteristics.
