What does cohabit mean?

Asked over 5 years ago - Lawton, OK

In my divorce decree it says " do not cohabitate with a member of the opposite sex during any visitation or period of custody of the children." What exactly does that mean in detail?

    Answered . It means to me: No boyfriends or girlfriends as applicable to your situation living in the home when you have your kids there. However if you remarry, I think you will need to seek clarification although the term cohabit usually refers to unmarried folks living together.
