Living together outside of marriage, once associated primarily with Hollywood celebrities and libertines, has become so common that if you tell your parents you’re moving in with your significant other, they’ll probably roll their eyes and ask you to pass the peas.
Young adults – along with older adults who have been previously married – may view living together as a way to avoid the hassles often associated with the end of a marriage. But if you and your partner share property, a breakup could be even messier than a dish-throwing divorce. “The biggest financial issue that unmarried couples face is the issue of yours, mine or ours,” says Frederick Hertz, an Oakland attorney and author of Living Together: A Legal Guide for Unmarried Couples. “Marriage is a system that organizes that landscape for you. If you had it before, it’s yours. If you earned it while we’re together, it’s ours. With unmarried couples, it’s all up in the air.”
If you are not married you cannot do what married people do such as live together and have sex. These are ONLY for marriage folks. Now, I understand the economy is not doing well and it will be like this for a long time, but God does not want to hear that. Do we think we are far more better than the church of Corninth? This is what persecution is all about saints; doing what God says no matter the cost! Times were hard for them as well-epsecially if they were professing Christians.
One thing that is plaguing the Church is “image”. Our “earthly image” matters more than what God says. God is the first Person we should please ; so if your thinking of getting married and you think you are ready, seek appropriate counsel and take neccessary steps prior to getting married. On the Contrary, if you are not ready, you should not be having sex or cohabiting.
