I question that study, wonder if it was done by some religious organization?
    Sorry no. It is a conservitive organization so there is some overlap but the studies they have done have been held up by other studies on the subject as well. For example:

    Debunking Divorce Myths
    "Divorce Myth 2: Living together before marriage is a good way to reduce the chances of eventually divorcing.

    Fact: Many studies have found that those who live together before marriage have a considerably higher chance of eventually divorcing. The reasons for this are not well understood. In part, the type of people who are willing to cohabit may also be those who are more willing to divorce. There is some evidence that the act of cohabitation itself generates attitudes in people that are more conducive to divorce, for example the attitude that relationships are temporary and easily can be ended."

    I found multilple references to studies on the subject with the same results. The NCFR comment on it, news articles comment on it, even a "Alternatives to Marriage" site refer to it. The only difference is that they blame the divorce rate on "couples who cohabit before marriage may have different values than couples who do not". (Oh, wait, they just agreed. Don't tell them. ) They also complained that the studies " considered only women ages 15-44".


    So even if they are right the question remains, what kind of person do you want to be? What percentage chance do you want your marriage to have at succeeding? Back when I was on "the market" I studied the percentages and figured out what would give me the highest percentage chance of having a lasting marriage. I managed to figure it up to a 90% success rate, and then did it. But I have been accused of being anal. lol So far it has worked though. Personally I don't understand people who are told, if you do x there is a good chance y will happen but believe it could never happen to them. Well it happened to someone or there wouldn't be the numbers there are... and yes, it could be you.

    it really just depends on the types of ppl. and if feeling are gonna get involved. its not bad, just isant always smart, which is kinda an oxymoran. sex is highly over rated, and really shouldnt be taken lightly. i guess its not bad till it becomes a need rather than a want.

    hmm very nice answer's everyone very nice. now that i look at some of your points is see sex before marriage is ok. if you know the person well enough and love each other then its fine. i konw thios one women shes not married but she still lives with the man she loves. she and ihm just dont wish ot be legally married. and they have a son too. he's kool. so i think its fine. as long as you just dont go sex crazy and screw every person that you "love".

    thanks for the sig SasuraiHell!!!!

    People misunderstand the concept of what marriage means as well as the point of sex, humans do not really use sex to ensure survival of the species anymore. It is an act of showing ones love for another and marriage is as well an act to show ones love. In my opinion they are one in the same, you can marry or sleep with anyone but you can only give that first to one person for each. To me I want them to be the same person as to show they are the most special person to me. But to each thier own.

    Re: Sex....Before or After?

    i believe that people should do wahtever is in their nature. some ppl are able to wiat until marriage and some arent. . .that doesnt make them a bad person and if you wait until marraige that doesnt mean your a good person. for me i will probably wait for the oppurtune moment whenever that is..either before or after marriage...
    Don't let me be.
