If you will base it in the bible(catholic) it is immorality assuming that the two person are making love without a wedding before they live together. Making love of course is present if two person (man and woman) are living together). In my views with this, i will not go with this set up. Before living together as in serious commitment of marriage in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship, you have that chance to know much more better. In others who practice this i am not against with them. It is our individual choice and we are free to decide of this matter. I

Well yes,i appreciate your thoughts.It is completely dependent on every people's individual choice.The fact is sometime if you want to live in a live-in relationship you are not supported by your near ones.In that case only some people are not following it though they like it..

Our individual choices that for us it makes us happy, that is the way we want to live with our partner. We choose to live without marriage because in the future that our partner disagree and end up into separation there is no big problem because we are not attached by marriage. Anytime we want to leave each other it is easy. Something that is an advantage of this set-up. Our family may resist of this but we have our choice to live our life, because after of what may happen in the future, we are still the one to decide and not them to decide for us.

Well...I think it depends on the persons beliefs. I lived with my husband for 2 years before we got married. Personally I feel you don't know someone until you have lived with them. I don't think it matters what other's think as long as you two are happy with your decision.

I responded to your comment specifically because this phrase caught my eye: "Personally I feel you don't know someone until you have lived with them." The reason it caught my eye is because though I have never lived with a boyfriend, everyone I know who has lived with a significant other has said the same thing, and at this point I feel like it must be true. That said, I also feel that it's a highly individual decision that depends on the couple.

ya but sometimes there is a possibility that some person(anyone) may like the other one who may be of different religion.That can make problem of such decisions if he thinks about it.

I think live-in relationships are a bitter-sweet deal. On the one hand if you have a really good relationship or are engaged to be married it might work well. That way you know your partners habbits and the way they live and do things at home. It also sees how well you can work together to keep up the home. On the other hand it's bad because you tend to get annoyed with those habbits. If the two of you end it whose going to move out? What kind of bitterness is left there? How are you going to split the belongings?...I would do it only if I knew the relationship was going onto a different level. I don't care what other people think about it. It's all about the couple and how the individual relationship is.

it is correct that it may be beneficial after you are engaged to be married as you will be able to know how he does his/her things.

I think live-in relationship is bit awkward....u live with one to experiment the relationship..this is so wierd in my sense...and i'll never do it but i'll not interfere with anyone's choice..if someone wants to do this then i'll never stop them its all about different likes and dislikes...right........

everyone has their own lifestyle. do what makes you comfortable. some people are comfortable with it and some arent. everyone should do what is right for each one, and not base their life choices on what others are doing. and who cares what other people thing? it is not their business what you do with your life, anyway. many stupid people in society need to learn to mind their own business and live their own lives, and worry about their own lives, instead of making comments and judgments about others. i am independent. i prefer to live on my own until i get married. but that is me.
