If your partner asks you to move in with him/her will you consider that proposal or will you ask for marriage first?

Depend on situation. A lot of couple live together in the city is lighten the financial burden, ie Renting two places, transportation to see each other, telephone calls, etc. For me, i am living apart from him because he doesn't like to tidy up his room, something i can't tolerate with.

Fidel V. Ramos - Fidel V. ramos was born in Lingayen,Pangasinan on February 8, 1928. He was one of the former president of the REpublic of the Philippines.
Well I guess it depends upon the situation. Personally, I dont see anything wrong with living in with someone... I am a married woman already... And my relationship with my husband didn't work out... because he found someone new... And now we were both trap in our marriage... If only we find more time with each other and did not hurry getting married... then maybe our situation is not complicated now... Marriage is a situation that we should enter with caution... because its a life time commitment with your partner... And here in the Philippines marriage is sacred. Anulment here is very expensive... So I guess next time I would prefer to live in first with someone...(things ccahnge when youre living in the same house already than boyfriend/girlfriend relationship...) then we could get married when we really feel taht we could be a life time partners...

Yep, getting an annulment here is so expensive. A friend just went through that painful process and it even dragged their kids to it. I do prefer the same thing just like you but the problem is her family is so conservative and I don't think she will agree with the idea of it. Thanks for your thoughts.

I think it'll depend on the situation. If, let's say, you're engaged and about to get married, I guess it won't make a difference if you move in with him. However, if you're only in that boyfriend-girlfriend stage, I think it'll be best to think twice.

of course i will move in but with a condition that both of us are not working at the same company. Living togather prior to marriage is ok for me becasue during this time, both of us can easily know more about each others in the daily lifestyle. From that, we also can can determine whether the partner are suitable for me to spend my rest of the life. Living togather is totally different with dating because many thing we need to change such as habits, lifestyle to suit each other better. So, if both of us can't even pass this period togather, then i think both of us are not ready for a marriage first that will carry more higher responsibility.

I myself will prefer to have a living-in-together for a period to see if both of us really doing well living together. I don't wannt get married then realise we both have different living habit that both of us can't tolerate with.
