6 reasons why live-in relationship before marriage is a good idea
Couples living together before marriage is still seen as a scandalous topic in our society.
The explanation for this that I understand must be that people are unaware of how blissful this concept is.
It is a good way to test your relationship, and this way a couple can find out if their relationship will work or not without any responsibility.
Marriages are beautiful and a life-long commitment. So, one must make sure that they are marrying the right person.
A live-in relationship can help you in assessing whether your relationship is ready for marriage or not.
We have put together a list of reasons that tell why a live-in relationship before marriage is a good idea and why more couples should do it.
1. Bonding on deeper level
When you move in together, you get to spend more time together. More time spent together means a stronger bond. Live-in partners have enough time to get to know each other well and make an informed decision about getting married or breaking up without any additional expectations. You can discover how your other half lives, their habits, expectations and quirks.
2. Test for compatibility
Living together before marriage allows you to see if you can handle all of their habits and behaviors. This time can also be referred to as a ‘ultimate test’ to check if you and your partner can work as partners. A live-in relationship will teach you how to share your life with another person, and you must be compatible with them in order to do so.
If everything goes well during this time, you don’t find each other annoying, and they make you feel good and happy, then you have passed the test. This indicates that your relationship is ready for the next step: marriage.
3. No in-laws to tell you what to do
It becomes essential to please the in-laws in a marriage. It is not, however, required in a live-in relationship. The in-laws don’t tell you what to do or how to do it, and without the weight of pleasing the in-laws, spending time together and getting to know one other is a liberating process.
The couple does not have to follow the relationship advice of family elders or give in to societal pressure.
4. Save money
Living together saves a lot of money. Imagine how much money you will save by not having to travel long distances to meet up when you can do it every day. When you live together, you will split the house rent, which is excellent because it will save you money while you are living with your sweetheart.
5. Experience of how your life will be after marriage
This time together as a live-in partner will offer you a taste of marriage before you are married. During this period, you will be able to determine whether or not you are ready to marry and live as husband and wife.
6. No legal issues when parting ways
During this period, you can determine whether or not the person you think is right for you is truly right for you. If you don’t think things are going well with your partner, you can split up whenever you want without any legal issues or the stigma of being a divorcee.
Aside from all of these advantages, live-in relationships are a lot of fun. Imagine how much time you can spend together, sharing your joys and sorrows. Tell me about your thoughts on live-in relationships by commenting on our Facebook or Instagram pages.
