Anyone up for this debate , this is a cordial invitation to share perspectives on the matter of cohabitation. Definition of cohabitation according to google search : Cohabitation refers to situations in which two people live together, and are involved in an emotional and/or sexually intimate relationship. The term is commonly used regarding unmarried couples who choose to live together without officially getting married. For those that will bring statistics, here is a disclaimer about statistics. They don't and never will give you the whole story . Bias tends to get interlaced with the numbers and sometimes it depends on the areas that are being surveyed. But basically anyone that is representing the supposed fact that cohabitation does more harm than good to any one couple is strongly urged to step forward nowwwwww or forever hold your peace. "You may say I do and until death do you part". But seriously I am looking to learn and get understanding. Any takers , please come forth to the altar!
I feel that living together before getting married is a great idea! The bride and groom, bride and bride and/or groom and groom living together before marriage means that they can get to know each other and accept each other for who they are. Besides aren't they gong to live together anyways? They need to get used to living together before marriage to make sure they can be comfortable with each other.
So to get this correctly, you believe it is a constructive move for couples that are subsequently to marry to cohabitant prior. That if they decide to make living arrangements and share the same roof , that won't increase the likelihood of divorce or dissolution later down the road to matrimony. There have been studies and surveys done to make a claim that cohabitation is more detrimental to a couple's livelihood than anything else. But you side on the differ, is that your stance ?
So pretty much with all the case studies that have been done, I've concluded that there is in-substantiation to the claim. Couples or folks in relationships long live their unions or break their unions on the basis of the condition and quality there of. In another debate of a similar topic this is discussed . How compatible and how best fit are the two persons for marriage is the be all, end all in any event . Whether you live together or not doesn't change anything . It's what that person is to you that makes all the difference . From the personality to the attitude to the mindset and character base. If that person is not a right fit for you , they are not a fit in any circumstance whatsoever. Now the more you get to know the person and perhaps getting acquainted with their living habits can actually give one an adequate determination on compatibility. Like the saying goes , you really don't know a person like the one that you live with.
