Re: Living together before marriage. Yay or nay?

Will he do a commitment ceremony or an engagement? It doesn't have to be legal. It's an exchange of vows that you write and both sign, or a hand fasting ceremony.

Studies also found that couples who live together before getting married that have a formal commitment to each other (ie engaged or the like) have no different divorce rates than those who didn't live together prior to marriage. I think it's based on the commitment level reached prior to moving in together that determines longevity of marriage.
