    I can only say what's right for me and that is a NO. There is no way I'd ever give the best of everything I have to offer without the benefit of marriage so they really wouldn't "know" me.
    I'd be highly disappointed if either of my sons chose to also.

    I think it's an excellent idea, personally.

    Well....some people prefer to get married every time they blink. I don't make snippity comments about them...do I?

    I believe you just did. Just because a woman may have a few marriages and more engagements than can be counted on her fingers does make her snippity.I'll contemplate that at happy hour.
    BTW is that a real word ? Smile

    If not copyrighted the race on Boy. Please note I could have so effortlessly pointed out the polar opposite. Those thoughtlessly, recklessly bedding partners without a bit of well ...anything. Have a lovely evening.

    No. If anything it's RIGHT. Why would anyone want to commit the rest of their lives to someone when they don't even know that they can live with them?

    I dont believe its wrong. I am glad that my fiance and I have lived together for the past year because now I know what to expect while we live under the same roof.

    Better than getting married, then divorcing after you find out that you can't live together.
  • Cookielane 2013/01/12 22:04:45

    People who live together first to try things out are basing the relationship on the possibility of a break-up. Better to go into a relationship with a lifetime commitment; you work harder at the relationship, because it means more.

    People live together before marriage to see if they WANT a lifetime commitment to that person. You can't know for sure what a person is like until you live with them.

    I only know my own experience - it actually ruined the marriage. It makes sense if you look at it statistically, though. When I was growing up people hardly ever lived together - it was a big deal when they did. And the divorce rate was pretty low. Nowadays, everybody lives together first, and for those that bother to get married, the divorce rate is off the chart.
  • Heptarch Cookielane 2013/01/13 13:59:41

    Correlation does not equal causation. Unless you can show direct evidence that living together results in a higher divorce rate, your argument is invalid.

    I think it makes more sense to say that back when people weren't living together before marriage, the reason they stayed in their marriages more often was because divorce was socially unacceptable.

    People should stay chaste and live together when married.

    I don't want someone living with me if they are not willing to commit.

    Moving in with someone is a pretty strong commitment in its own right.

    I don't think it is wrong.It is better in my opinion to see if you can live with each others little quirks and best find out first then when it is to late.For me i lived with my husband for a year then married and we have survived pretty good so far : )
