To live or not to live together before marriage is a matter the couples think much about. The times when a joint residence without a stamp in a passport was considered a bad tone have long passed. In the modern world, more and more lovers live together, being completely satisfied with this state of affairs.
Usually, people who practice living together before the wedding are convinced that living together is an important moment in getting to know each other in everyday life. In this manner, the lovers try to check the readiness of one another to a serious step in any relationship – marriage. Also, living together one can get closer to the chosen person, learn their habits. Such relationships are easier to stop than marriage: in this case, there are no legal barriers.
Alternatively, others believe that life absorbs feelings – and, in the end, relationships are ruined if you live together prior to the wedding. Such people begin to live together only after a stamp in the passport. This position is justified by the fact that the meaning of the wedding would be lost if it doesn’t mark a kind of border, a new step in the relationship between lovers. When two are confident in their feelings, there is no thinking about testing their relationships, trying, training before the “journey to a stamp in the passport.” This is all the fruit of doubt, and if a person doubts – it is better not to marry this partner at all. Besides, statistics show that those couples who lived together before the wedding have a higher percentage of divorces.
