I do not think that anymore.
Still believe strongly in chastity!
Still believe that people should wait to live together (and all that implies :)) ’til after they are married.
In Spanish, “casarse” means “to get married.” “Casa” means house. So to live together in the same house means you are married!
With today’s high divorce rates and broken families, I understand why some people would be hesitant to commit to marriage, thus delaying it, or even avoiding it altogether.
Ironically, statistical evidence has repeatedly shown that people who cohabitate are actually MORE likely to get divorced (and have other problems as well)
More to come on these ideas.
