Cohabitation Destructive to Couples
Many college students and recent graduates slide into cohabitation, and some don't see that as a crucial problem. The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) recently issued a report asserting "a 65 percent chance that first cohabitation for men and women would transition to marriage within 5 years." The report claimed that the "probability that a woman's marriage would last at least 10 years" was nearly the same for those who first cohabited (60 percent) as for those "who did not cohabit before marriage (66 percent)."

Those statistics bulwark three widespread myths of cohabitation, but I analyze the data differently:

Myth 1: Cohabitation is a step to marriage. The number of cohabiting couples soared 13-fold from 523,000 in 1970 to 6.8 million in 2008‚ÄĒbut only 1.4 million of them married that year. The average cohabitation lasts 18 months, which means there are about 4.6 million new ...

What happens when the country's elected leader is in such a relationship with no plans to marry? This is now the case in Australia. Very very sad.
I fear for our nation.

Anecdotal it is, but the one example that stands out to me is this- A guy I worked with had a live-in girlfriend for 8 years before they decided to marry. 6 months later they were divorced.

Actual committment is sorely lacking in the shacking-up crowd. It's a me-first relationship. They can always just walk away. Marriage for them carries the feeling of entrapment.

"Myth 1: Cohabitation is a step to marriage. The number of cohabiting couples soared 13-fold from 523,000 in 1970 to 6.8 million in 2008‚ÄĒbut only 1.4 million of them married that year. The average cohabitation lasts 18 months, which means there are about 4.6 million new cohabitations each year. Only 30 percent "transitioned into marriage," not 65 percent."

Interesting article and stats.

God established marriage for His creatures therefore marriage is the best way of living together and for family.
Cohab is the usual rebellion (transgression) against God by sinners which can never work. But this is reprobate life in action together with all sin, the penalty of which is hell and damnation.

Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
