“It’s cool because the next step is marriage.”
This is not true. Statistics show that just over half of couples who decide to move-in together marry within five years. Within that time, 40% don’t make it. Not to mention the emotional instability this brings to those involved, because at anytime the relationship could dissolve. Marriage is a spiritual decision, not just a legal one. You make a promise first to God and then your mate and establish a covenantal relationship that will work to support a life-long friendship.
