The redesigned 2014 Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) includes a complete fertility history for all respondents, including new questions to ascertain shared fertility between partners.  These data allow us new insight into the childbearing patterns of “empty nest” adults. I use these data to describe the composition of the sample of adults with biological children over the age of 18 with whom they do not live.  Using SIPP data on childbearing unions, I can discern whether couples have children together, and whether they have children with other partners.  These data will serve to inform the literature on the fertility of adults whose children do not live with them.
