  • Marriage is a Sacred Sacrament created by God

    Now don't get be wrong. Living with other people is perfectly okay but having children out of wedlock is gross and selfish. People who cohabit don't think about the future of their children and the stability of their union (which doesn't even exist in cohabitation!) Marriage is sacred and getting to have children is a sanctified privilege which unmarried couples do not. Some may say that who don't have to go through complex divorce red tape and blah blah blah, but marriage is a sacrament, union of flesh between a man and a woman, not a casual thingamajig! Divorce is only acceptable when the woman cannot and does not want to have children which is also known as annulment. Cohabitation also encourage unstable marriages and casual relationships, which is not good for you and pretty much the whole of society. Think about the children. Imagine you were one of them. Your father suddenly left the family and he was a main breadwinner. How would you cope with living in poverty and -god forbid- without a home?

  • It's wrong for so many reasons.

    First, marriage is to protect women. A woman's biological clock ticks faster than a man's. So, her "good years" are burning much faster than the man's. Men can always marry younger, but not so much with women...If one party decides they want kids.

    Plus, it distorts dating. I've met women (as a single guy) that are great matches, but are encumbered by a current "roommate" situation...Which I usually bail from.

  • Yes, cohabitation is wrong.

    It is wrong in that it tears down the institute of marriage. It brings down the very meaning marriage stands for- commitment. It is a rather scary world where people no longer have the courage and the sense of discipline to commit to one person, but would rather go off trying out their lick knowing they can bale out at the first sight of trouble due to the absence of a formal binding.

  • A definite yes

    Cohabitation is just an excuse for people to dodge the discipline of marriage. It's tailored for a selfish generation, people who want to have things their way all the time. Not only is this immoral, but also bad for traditional families. I'm for any behavior that encourages traditional families, and not taking from traditional marriages

  • Yes Cohabitation is wrong

    No it's not a matter of personal beliefs. Many marriages have ended in divorce because they were in the same house or apartment before marriage. And it says in the bible on their wedding, day the man shall leave his parents and cling to his wife. No matter what the beliefs today are.

  • Yeah.

    The contrary arguments are weak, premarital sex is wrong and the subject implies such. Think about, be it a natural or God-given thing sex has a purpose and that purpose can not be fulfilled without commitment, marriage. Granted marriage is increasingly weakened as a commitment what with divorce however that is caused by many levels of foolishness on the part of those involved. Back to my main point it in fact shows a lack of interest to not marry, thus removing any point in living together.

  • Yes, cohabitation is wrong

    Cohabitation shows a lack of commitment. It’s similar to children playing house. People would rather live together than get married. It’s like having one foot out of the relationship door. If people had to get married in order to live together, they’d certain think twice about the person they think they are in love with.

  • It is perfectly fine

    It is not wrong to live with whom you like. We are human and we all want what is best for us. It is ok to live with said person of interest because you would be testing how life would be with that person. Everyone hates when they think they have the "right one" and only end up hating that person's real ways when its too late, leading to divorce. Cohabitation is not the reason for divorce, it is our fault as humans for not seeing the true nature of the other. Cohabitation allows us to see that nature, and see if that is truly the person we want to spend our life with. To this day there are happy married couples who had cohabited for quite some time with their significant other and those couples are proof that cohabitation is not wrong. It is a sample of life. How many of you would like to invest so much affection and time into a relationship if you are not sure you will like their home lifestyle. This very factor is something that can change someone's choice about getting married. If you are truly committed, cohabitation will be a way of proving it. It does not state anywhere in the law books that living with someone is wrong unless they are a fugitive running from the law. As for morality, who are we to say if something is right or wrong. Life does not have a right from wrong, everything happens for a distinct and often illicit reason. Oceans have plenty of cohabiting creatures and they live just fine. Even since early times humans have cohabited, of course it was not as sophisticated back then as it is now. I'm honestly amused and surprised if you would read all this, and if you did, come and debate with me so we can settle it with reason if you have issues with it.

  • Nope, nothing wrong with it.

    The Church can't guarantee that one's marriage will be faithful and life-long. Many young couples think they are ready to get married but once they do, without really 100% knowing their partner, they want a divorce. Then, one has to deal with that legal process. Cohabitation tests the relationship to see it its compatible.

  • Its not wrong

    It's a view of preference but if a couple feels comfortable with it then why should it be wrong? Just because people don't feel the need to legalize anything on paper, doesn't mean they don't love each other any less than a married couple. Marriage is a social construct in which we don't necessarily need.

  • No its not wrong

    No, its not wrong. In my opinion, cohabitation IS marriage (legal documentation and a formal wedding not included). You know when you purchase something, like pictures? And there are different package sizes with varying prices? Thats how I see the marriage/cohabitation debate. Marriage is the total package. Cohabitation is the same, the same emotional/sexual commitments and such along with everything else, just minus the legal officiality, hence what is in parentheses above.

    I'm on my second "marriage". I refer to the man I was previously with as my ex-husband, and the one I'm currently with as my husband. He has a brother, and 4 sisters, who I consider my in-laws. He has a son, who we say is my stepson. Of course, when it comes to legal documentation i have to check "single", but I really dont see the problem and why people get so bent out of shape about it. Others who think its such a big deal need to quit making a mountain out of a mole hill.

  • No, there is nothing wrong with it

    No, cohabitation is not wrong. This gets back to the morality of premarital sex. Is that wrong? No. Therefore living together before marriage is not wrong. What's honestly the big deal? It helps economically, it saves space, and it makes people happy. All of those things are positive. Why would that even be questioned?

  • Cohabitation is way of life

    If we're talking about cohabitation before securing a marriage license no. Some people have civil agreements and civil marriages and not to mention spiritual beliefs which may not include securing a piece of paper before they can be considered life partners. Cohabitation is a personal choose a couple makes. There are some definite benefits to cohabiting before signing the marriage license, such as finding out what it is like to live with your love before you are married.

  • No, it's a matter of personal beliefs.

    Cohabitation is not wrong. Ultimately, morals and personal beliefs are just that-- Personal, and not the business of any outsiders. Being married doesn't mean the same thing to everybody and some people may not even have that desire. Just because they do not want to get married, either at that point or ever, doesn't mean living together and being intimate suddenly becomes wrong.
