Adequate income and lack of adultery or abuse prevent divorce

asixbury 6 years, 1 month ago

Moving in with someone before marriage is definitely a good idea. You get to see your partner as they really are, not as the imagined person you've built in your mind. You will also have an adjustment period to see if you can actually put up with the person you intend on marrying. If you cannot live together peacefully before marriage, how in the world would it work after? Marriage is just a title; the wedding is for relatives. I was "married" to my husband before vows were ever spoken. If all the importance of one's relationship is put on becoming married, marriage simply becomes a hollow symbol.

Well put. "Prevent" is too strong a word I think. Reduce the likelihood would be a better choice of words. I've been married 23 years, so far so good.

How about if I'm married and move in with a nice college girl somewhat younger than me? I wonder if my wife would divorce me.

Who comes up with these stupid questions?

What possible importance does my or anyone else's opinion have regarding the subject?

Surely there are myriads of scientifically based studies that are more relevant than an LJW random poll.

Suggestion for next question: "When you see the color red is it the same color that someone else sees".

Statistically, living together before marriage increases the likelyhood of divorce.
