Some people specially here in the philippines practice in Live in and much easier than marriage, some marriage end up to divorce and unfaithful husband/wife, they think that Live in is better to start before they get married to find out if relationship working out, and if the relationship works then they get wed...we all know that live in is much easier to anything....but other country has a different culture regarding married life and it was easier to get divorce when couples having problems to their relationships thats why its ok to them to get married...whats your opinion to this topic?

I think it is up to the couple. If the couple agrees,everything is okay. If you and your partner agree that marriage is not for you but you want to live together, that's great. Or if you and your partner agree that you want to get married, that's great. Here in the States either are acceptable these days. True, there are still people that have to marry because of their religion. But society isn't pressuring people to get married like it used to do.I think as long as you and your partner agree, it is all right. The problem comes up when you want to marry someone who doesn't want to marry you or your patrner wants to marry you but you don't want to marry them.

Many people imagine that living together before marriage resembles taking a car for a test drive. The "trial period" gives people a chance to discover whether they are compatible.This analogy seems so compelling that people are unable to interpret the mountains of data to the contrary. Here's the problem with car analogy: the car doesn't have hurt feelings if the driver dumps it back at the used car lot and decides to not buy it. The analogy works great if you picture yourself as the driver. It sinks if you picture yourself as the car!
