I don't believe in "live-in relationships" because to me, those involved are skating on their responsibilities. I'm old fashioned in thinking that if you want the sex and intimacy, marry.
I've known several people that have tried live-in relationships (homosexuals and heterosexuals) and living with their "partner" did nothing but end their relationship sooner.
When you live with someone, there are expectations of marriage, even if you're not married. I knew a couple that were together for over 5 years. They were great. Then they got married. Within months, they're relationship disintegrated.
I know that not everyone believes as I do. Many think it's a good thing to "test drive" the merchandise before you buy it. But it's just not biblical; and I've known far too many who've "tested" and have reaped the consequences.
I'm not saying it can't be done either. I know some that have done it and appear to be successful. However, they also hardly ever see each other and the man in the relationship has been unfaithful numerous times throughout their "live-in" arrangement.
Yes I do, might as well really get to know someone before making a mistake. Things have changed so very much since the old days. The divorce rate seems to get higher every year.
Yes, absolutely. It's good to know what you're getting into, and with whom, before taking a plunge into something more permanent.
Yes.. I do. Let me put it like this... It's always good to take a test ride before buying a car..you know...
Ohhh yes. If you are serious enough to consider marrying someone, you really should live with them for a while first. People act very different in their house than how they act out and about. They can appear really clean, but their house could be a mess. I had a related problem during my first quarter at college- my roommate was nice before I started living with her, but I immediately realized how different she was. She was paranoid that people were stealing her stuff, so she wrote her name on everything, including a couple things of mine! She said she was clean but left dirty dishes out for weeks. She was a very sweet person, but I couldn't stand living with her!
Absolutely! It's the only way to get an idea of whether or not you could see yourself possibly spending the rest of your live with them.
