    Do you think a couple should move in together before they are engaged or married?

    I personally believe they should live together at least before you are married... you learn a lot from and about each other during those first few months, and its not that I feel it will always make or break a relationship, but i think it eliminates some of the other stresses that come along with being newly married...

    I think it is completely up to each individual, each couple. Statistics show that a couple who lives together before marriage are more likely to divorce. But, I think that's crap lol.. I mean, I know people who are still going strong 30 years in!!!
    A heart truly in love never loses hope, but always believes in the promise of love, no matter how long the time and how far the distance

    Me and DB are planning on gettin an apartment very soon. We want to make sure we can live together before we think about being married...not to mention traveling to see each other is so expensive we would rather just be together

    There was a thread about this before...

    My answer is...
    It all depends on the people..
    For me I couldn't marry someone until I lived with them. I feel as though living with them helps me to get to know them to the fullest.. (i'm not saying you can ever know someone fully though.. There is always surprises.) But that is just my one lonely opinion.

    I think it depends on the couple. DH and I didn't live together before we got married, and I think we are doing great so far. Of course there are adjustments that need to be made, but I just think it depends really.

    I think if couples are considering marriage, they should move in together. I have nothing against moving in with someone before your married... i actually think it's a great idea! I practically lived with DF for a couple of years before he joined the army.
