Is it better to live together with your bf/gf in one house before getting married or is it more better get married first before living together? hmmm Is it much better just have a live-in relationship why spend lot of money on wedding ceremony and eventually spend lot of money again for a divorce?
My answer to this question is based upon what God says and teaches in His Word, the Bible. God's divine order is first marriage, then sex and children. If a couple is living together before marrriage, the Bible teaches that they're living in adultery. Unfortunately, many people want to do things their way, and not God's way.
I suppose that if people have enough money to live together, that have ability to get married. Why do they always say about huge ceremony that costs a lot? If u don't want to do it with huge amount of relatives, just arrange the wedding together on the coast in the great country like Cuba. It's quite intimate event, u don't need other people. But if one partner don't want to get married, cos he is still not sure about this decision, he starts talking about money and so on. And I agree with Tom in question of religion, of course)
If you live with your partner, you'll learn more about them and therefore have a better idea of whether marriage is right or not. As for the marriage and ceremony, neither are necessary but each to their own.
P.S. Tom's comment makes me want to make multiple accounts just to give it the thumbs down I think it deserves.
...and I didn't by the way. :)
Poor Tom, he was just saying well-meaning words. I agree with Skolopendra, it's a quite intimate event, you don't need the big weeding hassle.
Jacky, if u don't think that marriage and religion are related, it's ur own opinion and choice. But every person who believes in God (it doesn't have any meaning, which God) supposes the marriage to be saint, and it's great!) U accuse Tom of obtrusion of his attitude to religion and do the same.
But this is a place to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of living together before marriage. We want to hear people's opinion, possibly with their own personal experiences or some online source supporting any claim. Tom doesn't add anything to this discussion. His thoughts aren't his own. He's merely repeating what he's been brainwashed into believing. No matter which answer he gave, it is as meaningless as if I were to get my answer from shaking a Magic 8-Ball.
Sorry,what? I can't believe that u do really think so and see things soo.
Some years ago in Spain was more typical to first get married and then live together, but this situation has changed. Now less people is getting married, so couples move together and after a few years if they continue being happy together and they have enough money they will finally marry.
I don't want to live together first before marriage because of the following reasons below:
1.) Here in my country most of people who live together don't end up in marriage. it's either they broke up or end up of having no plan to marry.
2.) When their partner die the other one will not have any benefit because they are not legally married.
3.) when they broke up people will say they broke up because their relationship was not blessed.
4.) When the other have 3rd party you can't sue them.
5.) When problem rise up it is easy to decide to separate because we don't have marriage commitment.
