Should You Live Together Before Marriage? Video

Once a couple has been dating for a while, they often talk about taking their relationship to the next level.  In the past, this meant that they would be getting married, but these days it is just as likely that you will consider that this next step will be living together.  Although living together is not usually viewed as a lifetime commitment the way marriage is, it is still a big step in a relationship and should not be taken lightly.  The Advice Panel vloggers have each put together a list of signs that you are not ready to move in together as well as list of signs that you are ready.  Here is what they have to say:

Tina of LuvemOrLeavem recently wrote about couples who choose to live together, and she lists some of the most common reasons that women cite for moving in together that left them regretting their decision.  For her list of signs that you are ready for this step, Tina consulted relationship expert Raymond Bork who has written many times about tips for couples moving in together.

In his list of signs that you are ready to move in together and signs that you are not, David Black of Social Masters also has some great tips for evaluating the health of your relationship whether you decide to take that next step or not.

    Wow, the video panel gave some terrific reasons why you should or should NOT move in together. Here’s another reason why you should not move in together: differences in housekeeping styles.

    If you are considered a “neat freak,” but your partner is far more lax in the domestic chores department, that is a HUGE red flag that you should not move in together.

    So, if you two are a modern day “Odd Couple,” it’s best to postpone that move until you seriously discuss if it’s possible for you to co-exist in one space.
