Christian cohabitation is on the rise with many couples. Even people are who actively attending a church and bible studies live together without much conviction. Despite decades of statistics that link cohabitation to high rates of divorce, few people view it as damaging to a life long commitment. Many churches today will offer couples pre-martial counseling, as well as the option for one of them to live in a church families home until they can marry. As parents and youth group leaders, be communicating and educating your young adults on this matter. Let's encourage our churches to offer a live-in program before marriage!
