How did living together before marriage work out for you? Successful or not?


I'm doing a hub on this subject and would like to hear about some real experiences.

    I really appreciate your sharing that very personal story, Billie. I agree you definitely needed to know each other better and maybe living together would have worked as it has for many others, despite what the research says. Thanks for answering.

    That's great news, DDE. HP writers seem to defy the odds :-) The research for my hub says otherwise. Thanks for answering.
