are you the type of person who would get married to your boyfriend first before sharing a bed or would you choose to live with him before wedding?

Most definitely live together first. I think the only way to really know someone is to live with them. If someone is going to get married then they should know as much as possible about their partner first and to me, living together would be how to find this out. Many people have gotten married then discovered that they could not live happily together so living together first takes the mystery out of it.

As a male respondent: I've always been an avid believer that couples should live together for a while before getting married. I think it's possible to fully know if you can stand seeing someone every day of your life until you've actually tried it. A lot of people just can't stand each other's smaller nuances, and you don't get to see those things without actually living with a person.

I lived with my hubby for 5 years before we got married and I wouldn't change it. Living with him that long got me used to what type of person he was and made him get used to me also. It made us grow a lot closer too I would recommend everyone living together before marriage. It is not as much of a shock then moving in after you are married

I prefer marriage first. I also respect the opoinion of others that live is okay but we should follow what we think is morally right. Live could be in jeopardy and there is no security whenever the woman became pregnant because there is no marriage that occured. Secondly, the notion of live-in is against the will of God because of fornication.
