You never know a person until you live with them. Many divorces could be avoided if the couple
would just live together for a period of time before they decide to get
married. Some people would say why buy
the cow if you can get the milk for free, but I would say why buy a car without
a test drive.
You do not truly know your mate until you have lived with them. Just dating someone does not give you enough insight on how easy or hard it would be to live with them. People have flaws and quirky ways that might only be seen in the way they live. Therefore you need to live with a person to learn everything about them to see if you are actually compatible and if marriage will last.
