Thanks for sharing this article. I'm always looking for ways to connect with my non-religious friends and family who are deciding on these things.

I am glad you posted something on this topic. Co-habitation is a recent topic of interest in my research. From both Christian and secular sources I have come across interesting and ultimately convincing arguments against living together before marriage.
The first source I found was in Mindy Meier's "Sex and Dating: Questions You Wish You Had Answers To." In her book, she provides good research and a Christian answer.
In the recent book by Lori Gottlieb's "Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough." Writing from the perspective of a secular Jewish woman, Lori's professional and personal research leaves us with a surprisingly Christian answer to a modern problem.
For supremely interested scholars, there is an upcoming workshop with The Witherspoon Institute: "Does True Love Wait? Marriage, Cohabitation, and Relationships among Young Adults Today."
