Living together then marriage or marriage then live together! That is the question.


Families have changed in the last several decades. Instead of getting married, many people are living together or 'cohabiting'. Some of these cohabitating couples eventually get married. Many of them break up. Very few stay together as cohabitants for long.It seems more and more couples these days live together as though to test the water then if it works out they have a wedding! Is cohabitation a good alternative to marriage? Is it a good way to 'test out' the relationship? If you know you are right for each other would it not be prudent to marry first then live together.

    I am with you Josak. If a couple is contemplating marriage, it is wise to live together first. That way they will know each other in their utter realness. They will know of their compatibility in personalities and in other arenas.
