Why it is Bad????

  1. The Bible

GEN 2:24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

1 COR 7: 1Now concerning the things about which you wrote, it is good for a man not to touch a woman. But because of immoralities, each man is to have his own wife, and each woman is to have her own husband. The husband must fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband.

HEB 13:4 Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge

1 Cor 6:18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.


  1. Testing the relationship creates a cracked broken relationship foundation because it is a relationship that based on a test and not commitment


  1. Marriage and children will never be convenient. If your marriage is based on this myth you will struggle.


  1. It dishonors the woman you are called to protect by parading her around.


  1. Statistics prove that it is a BAD idea with 70% of cohabitator divorcing over the already high 50%. Again, the Bible proves itself over the world’s wisdom


Psychology Today The new study is by Michael Rosenfeld and Katharina Roesler. Their findings suggest that there remains an increased risk for divorce for those living together prior to marriage and that prior studies suggesting the effect went away had a bias toward analyzing shorter versus longer-term effects. They found that living together before marriage was associated with lower odds of divorce in the first year of marriage, but increased odds of divorce in all other years tested, and this finding held across decades of data.

SOLUTION “IF you are claiming to follow Jesus” If you do not, then do what you want.

  1. Get married asap
  2. Move out asap
  3. Keep doing what you are doing and pay for it.
