One of the results of the divorce revolution in our culture is that many who have experienced their parent’s divorce are delaying or rejecting marriage. Over 60 percent of them think cohabitation before marriage is a good idea, and they are more likely to be living with their partner than those from intact, married families. The thing that makes this trend worrisome is that cohabitation “leads to more breakups, divorce, and economic instability, creating a complex web that increasingly involves children.”
The sanctity of marriage is real. God created the marriage bond and it is best for all parties, men and women, boys and girls. Live with your partner only after you marry, and stay married despite the difficulties. –--Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell.
