One of the dangerous trends I see in family life today is the practice of co-habitation. Most people want to debate the reasons why it happens and why we as a church shouldn't speak against it. The Bible teaches differently. The stability of a life time commitment allows families to enjoy a happier and healthier life while building a stronger foundation for their children's future. A recent study which you can read here, only reinforces what the Bible says. If you are going to get into a relationship, remember this. Being with the end in mind. Don't make it up along the way.
