  • I lived with my husband for over 4 years before we got married, and we had our son before we got married. Our relationship is fine, and we couldn't be more happy and more in love:)

  • I think that you can't actually base it on just those things.... every relationship is different... I know a few people who didnt live together or anything until after they were married and they have bad marriages ( 2 of them are even getting divorced) while I have pretty much the same amount of friends who lived together and some even had kids before getting married and they have really strong relationships

  • I don't think so, you get to know each other before you decide that they are the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.

  • It didn't for us. I am glad we lived together before we got married. We got to know all our corks and that before we got engaged and married.

  • Does trying on a pair of pants before you buy them hurt how you'll wear them once you bring them home?

  • I would say that it helps you make sure that is who you want to be with because you know the other person well but for some people that is not true. For some, once the I do's are said it all changes.

  • I don't see that it hurts at all, but I also don't see how it helps. It is what it is
