Re: Living together before marriage. Yay or nay?
For me.....my DH and I bought a house together while engaged (he was living at his moms but spending most nights at our house) and had premartial sex beforehand as well even though both of our ideals were to wait until we were married. Honestly I feel like both were hard on our marriage. I was more stressed about our choices being against our ideals and beliefs. I wish that we would have had the self control to wait until we were married.
If your beliefs or ideals are to be married before living together then dont compromise. There will most likely be regret because you are going against what you originally wanted. If you want/need commitment in the form of marriage before living together then dont compromise your ideal.
