I think that is a good idea. I was divorced from my first wife, back in the early 70s and met someone else. We both decided it would be better if we just lived together for a while - our parents didn't like it one bit as not many people were doing that back then. It was fortunate because we weren't best suited and split up after a year, but it was amicable. I was probably on the rebound. If we had got married, we would have had all the legal entanglement all over again. I'm married now again, and we lived together for a couple of years and were still certain that we were OK together and have been for the last 20 years.

I wouldn't live together before marriage. It's living outside of God's will, and I'm not going to compromise what God asks of me.

My boyfriend and I, sort of lived in the same room for a year, then I got pregnant then we waited for our child to be born before we decided to get married. Many couples break up after marriage because they based their marriage on feelings alone, feelings fade after you see the flaws of your partner. Yet when you base your marriage on love and dedication, I'm sure the marriage will last. We'll be celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary this month.

Marriage is preferred. Those marriage break within one year or two is not actually marriage, it was a hiding force contact in form of marriage without having good contact with two souls. A marriage is an interpersonal relationship with governmental, social, or religious recognition, usually intimatacy, and often created as a contract. The most frequently occurring form of marriage unites a man and a woman as husband and wife. Other forms of marriage also exist, for example, polygamy, in which a person takes more than one spouse, is common in many societies. This is one kind of live-in. Marriage is a legal think but live-in have no legal or religious acceptance or obligations. Live-in have scope to leave anytime like divorce if the two souls do not have good contact. Marriage is a tie of love, love is heaven and heaven is love.
