If you live together and you get into a big argument and you wake up in the morning and your partner is still there, they are there out of choice. They chose to be with you in spite of the hard times. If you're married, they may be staying because they don't want a divorce. If you're married, you may feel like being forced to stay. If you are not married, it's a choice. That's a plus ;)
Um, excuse me. Are you guys fucking crazy? Seriously, I'm just asking.
There is nothing wrong with two people living together. People living together is not a "huge problem of our society".
Jesus, what is wrong with you people? Are you Quakers or what? Don't you have anything better to worry about? Wtf.
Nowadays cohabitation is a huge problem of our society,according to the http://marriage.uslegal.
Now I want to give you some statistics:
In 2000 the total number of unmarried couples cohabiting in America reached 4.75 million. In 1960 there were less than 500,000 unmarried cohabiting couples. This information shows us that today cohabitation is a real problem of our society. What do you think why do young people prefer this way?
I think that living together before marriage is wrong, because the couples or younger will lose their interest from each other.Living together will help you learn all about your partner, and will be learn all bad and good side of living together. When you are live together with your partner without marriage, there will be a risk of divorcing , breaking up after the marriage. If you are love each other why not to show your feelings and happy for your relations. Marriage is a special event on Women`s life, being in a white dress. So i think that people should not live together before marriage.
I can't agree with you, Nazgul. You said that living together will help to learn about partner, but did you think that it is bad? In my point of view it is conversely one of the benefits of cohabitation. You learn what are your defferences, your attitudes towards each other either you will think continue or not to continue your relationships.
i wanted to say that if you are living in cohabitation you will know all about your partners, but Some more time later it will be uninteresting for both of them, they may be can not get to the marriage, they will divorce, because after discovering they will be boring for themselves
I think the first argument is that people who cohabit lose excitement of "being married."
After people get married they have new feelings and emotions because everything is different in their life. However, when people live together before marriage they do not have any changes. They still do the same things and have the same habits.
In spite of disadvantages of living together before marriage there are also some benefits. for example, getting to know each other on a daily routine. Even though you've been a couple for some time and surely you spent countless weekends together, there are certain types of behavior you will only notice when you live together.
According to the article which is called “What’s wrong with the work of the national marriage project?” high number of cohabitors plan to marry their partner. Among those who plan to marry there is no difference in terms of relationship quality when compared to married people.
In conclusion, I want to say that cohabitation before marriage is a way to avoid any commitment. These people are just afraid of of responsibility.
Moreover, they may leave as soon as it becomes troublesome. Also they may be living like a married couple, but when it comes to economic and social resources, they are not equal to that of a married couple. Unfortunately, it is also harmful for children. If children are born into the unmarried cohabiting couple, at a great risk that the couple could break up. Or girl can make abortion.
I think there are more advantages then disadvantages in living together before marriage, because sometimes disadvantages in this kind of relationship are avoidable. Some of the advantages of living together before marriage are such as getting to know your partner, learning about one's abilities if he/she can satisfy your expectations and more. It is more beneficial than to do a big mistake like living with person in whom you are disappointed.
Living together before marriage it is the decision of each couple, but if people love each other but are afraid of legal marriage, is it a true love? People do not have responsibilities to each other and do not have any duties. The main problem of such relationship is children of the marriage, according to the article " The Cohabitation Effect on Children" Children are more likely to suffer from the negative effects of poverty and low socioeconomic status. In conclusion, i want to say that couples should not be selfish and think about own comfort,but also think about future generation.
