Is It Better To Live With Them First Before Marriage?

One of the many questions that have been asked today is whether individuals should live together before they get married?

Dec. 28, 2010 - PRLog -- There has been an ongoing debate, many feel that it is better to live together to find out about the other individual and thee is the area where it concerns the Bible and Cultural differences that  individuals should marry first.

For argument sake I will side with the fact that one should be married before living together and the reason being is:

According to the Bible if one should have children out of wedlock then that child is considered a bastard child and that child may grow up feeling that he or she may not be worthy of certain things. Also what usually happens in this type of relationship is one of the parents does not feel obligated or responsible for taking care of his or her responsibilities towards the child then that forces one of the parents to carry the load of being mother and father and creating a hostile environment at home.

Whereas for instants the mother may have to take on the role of both parents trying to raise her child(ren) by herself, she may have to seek welfare, child-support, foodstamps, and many other services that the absent parent is not providing. Also the mother may have to work two jobs, leaving the child in the care of another individual who may not care for the child in the manner that the mother may do so; creating situations of neglect, molestation, rape and or abuse.

Raising a child in a single-family home creates an environment of a dysfunctional home. This at some point may subject the child to teen pregnancy, at risk for high school dropout, drug abuse and usage, possible infection of HIV and other STD’s.

Therefore it is very important to create an atmosphere where there is two parents in the home united in marriage, not having any separation, studies have shown that children who come from a functional home where marriage is involved will be more successful than a child who comes from a single parent home, the reason being is the child that comes from a single parent home has more obstacles to face.

Upon my conclusion I argue that two individuals who are truly sure of themselves and each other should trust that they marry without living together first and learn to be truly honest in their relationship with each other before marriage then there would be no reason for such a high divorce rate.

Let it be known that if you truly want to find out about the other person in the relationship before marriage then one should exam his/herself first for imperfections before examine  the other according to a high standard that they have set. WHAT STANDARD ARE YOU HOLDING YOURSELF TO?
