still believes in getting married BEFORE living together? I'm not judging anyone else who does co-habitate first, I don't really care what other people do with their lives and if that's what you want to do then go for it. But it seems like I'm the only one left who didn't live with my DH before getting married. I should add that this has nothing to do with religion for me, I personally just believe it's bad for the relationship/future marrige to live together first. Am I alone in this? If you think this too, what are your reasons for not living together first?

OK, now I'm simply curious about all the stats!

We lived together before we married. Good to know what I was getting myself into.

I lived with my husband before we got married. We're coming up on our 9 year anniversary next month, so I guess it wasn't so bad for our relationship. Though my parents would have been none too pleased if they knew.

We lived together for 2 years before we got married. I really don't see how it's bad for the future of the relationship. We've only been married almost 4 years but things are wonderful :)

I wanted to know DH in every way possible before marrying him. Living together is the way you do that. How is it bad for a relationship?

I would never commit to someone for life without living with them first.

Cohabitation was/is not for me. I never lived with any man before marriage.

We lived together before marriage and I am glad. I think everyone should do it.
