Living Together Not Getting Married
There are many reasons why people choose to live together without getting married. Some couples do not see the need for the state’s approval of their commitment to each other. Many couples view it as a trial period before marriage.
Some couples avoid marriage because they have gone through a bad divorce before. Many people, especially, often live with partners in order to reduce housing costs. And others simply don’t want to be bothered with joint liability or higher income taxes
