dear, forum mates, is there any hope for unmarried couples living together.
We live in very different times from old.
Not every couple wants to get married, the living together scenario is only a bad idea, if one half of the couple wants to get married, and the other doesn't.
As long as both parties choose to co-habit, there's absolutely nothing wrong with their set-up.
Being married also doesn't guarantee there'll be no split up either, so marriage shouldn't be seen as the "cement" that keeps a relationship together, divorces are also so easy these days, and can be initiated online for a small fee, so the worry of expenses wouldn't keep a couple together, if they decide they want out.
In short, there are no guarantees, marriage is a choice, and not a neccessity.
this is the simples best way to put it - a man that wants you in his house but does not want you to have his name will give you belle whether you have your own house or not - a man that only wants to date you but does not want to marry will NOT do it - i think as long as you both know what you want fromt he r/ship and set yourselves realistic targets you'll meet them in Jesus' name!
