It’s Time to Rethink Cohabitation Friday, April 3, 2020
I think it’s time to rethink premarital sex and cohabitation. In today’s culture sex before marriage and living together is the norm. But what if God’s precepts against doing so were meant to protect you from the pain of a break up? The best research shows that cohabitation disrupts the formation of a long-term commitment. And cohabiting parents break up at a higher rate and inadvertently expose their children to dangerous home situations. Since up to 40% of all children will spend time in a cohabiting home let's rethink this and let God protect us.
