I personally believe that couples should live together before marriage because it allows them to see how they fare living in the same space daily. Are you in agreement? Why or why not?

Good answer! I can see where you're coming from. I do believe that living together is better for both involved, at least financially. If you live together first, there's no divorce to pay for if it doesn't work out. Good reasoning though!
I agree. Even if you live together, you are still not married. Inviting that incredible intimacy of living together into your relationship before being married invites conditional love. Marriage is not a "try it and see if you like it" relationship
Great answer Scorpio! Valid points! I agree with you about selecting the wrong mate. People get divorced because they jump into marriage before they truly know their spouse. Sex before marriage doesn't necessarily lead to divorce either. Great answer
Couldn't've said it better myself. Too many couples jump in while they're still in this phase and by the time they start to realize that their partner has flaws, they either have to accept them or divorce. Well said. Thanks for the share!
Valid point, I am only interested in hearing your opinion. If you had to pick sides, which would you pick and why?
I agree 100%. Nice short answer! Right to the point!
I'm not sure I follow... do you have an "Idiot's guide to this answer"? Or perhaps a Coles Notes?
Ahh, Coles Notes = Cliff Notes. You inquired - "believe" should. I answered "absolutely not." A long "why" as a perspective? Shorter is I "accept & acknowledge" as okay, if of her free will + no pressure. Otherwise, is coercion? Slavery? One sid
Nothing wrong with old fashioned beliefs. A lot of those beliefs are the reason why our society is the way it is. Are they all perfect? No! Do we work at it? Of course! Issues and surprises happen in any relationship. Work at it to succeed!
I don't believe there is anything wrong with it either. Marriage is a big step and both parties should know 100% when they go that route. If you're going to spend the rest of your life with them you should be comfy living together. Well said.
Well said. Living together does offer you the opportunity to deal with domestic situations that would be experienced during a marriage. If you can handle them well for a long time, then you may consider marriage and have it be successful.
