Living Together Before Marriage {{Advice}}

Do you think living together is a good idea before marriage?


Dear Robyn:

This question COULD be tough depending on your morals, beliefs, etc.  but I look at it from a practical and reasonable point of view.  Sure, it might "rush" some things, as people say it may, and it may not be right to your parents... but with all of that aside...I look at it like this.... And I also speak from experience.... You don't truly know if you can live with someone until you actually do.  I had a relationship years ago where I got along with the guy well until we lived together...suddenly I noticed he didn't clean up after himself at all, and he was so stubborn when it came to splitting the cost of groceries, utilities, etc.  So trust me... people's true colors come out when they are in their home environment.  Personally, I think it is a good idea to try it out, because if it's horrible, you can break up and move out. If you are married, then you are in an unhappy marriage, and divorce can be hell.  That's just my take on it! Just make sure you know the guy enough that you are comfortable living with him.  i would wait until atleast 6 months- 1 year.
