    Cohabit or marry

    2ivoryho 2012-11-28 10:56
    More and more people accept to live together or cohabit with the girlfriend or boyfriend before getting married. As they feel they love each other at the moment when they try to move in. Yes, it seems so, however, there are many cases for the ones who move in and live together finally breaking up without leading to the marriage life even they have long-time cohabiting. 

    In the old time, before marrying, "a couple" cannot be moved in, which is kind of tradition. But since we are in 21st century, people are more open-minded and more internationalized, it is ok for the people to accept this "new idea" which for some people, it may be the kind of "stepping stone" period for the "couple" to understand if they fit to be together. 

    I have a Vietnamese female friend who now has a lovely family who has two kids and one loyal British hubby. She told me that when her hubby and she fell in love with each other, the hubby tried to ask her to move in, but she rejected and said "this is not my style, if you want me to move in, we could get married". After that, the hubby made the biggest decision in his life and marry her. In her mind, she still feels that what was in her mind about moving in still the right thing to do. I have different opinion in different period, but the me of this age, I could just agree what my Vietnamese friend thought. 

    Do you hold the same idea of mine or you may agree to try for the cohabiting and take the advantage of it?

    If the two has a long and steady relatioinship, it is ok for them to live together and try to work out wether they fit each other or not. But I wouldn't agree man and woman move together very casually, the most recent hot topic about Zheng Yuanyuan is a example.
