But do you know the one who is in a relationship but not planning to get married in future? Yes, every one of you at least knows one person who is in such a relationship. I know, it can be weird for some people but actually, it has become very common today. Basically, I am talking about the unmarried people who are living with each other.
According to a recent survey, the number of unmarried cohabitants has suddenly instead in the last 10 years. Don’t worry, this number is going to increase in next few years. The government is actually worried about the increased number because the number of issues is getting raised with the increasing number of unmarried cohabitants. As, everything have to as well as cons. Similarly, cohabitation also has some positives as well as some negatives. So, it is important to learn about both. Let us start!
Cohabitation basically means, when two people live in the same house and performing the sexual activities with each other, without performing any matrimonial ceremony. Cohabitation is basically of two types i.e., it can be between homosexual people as well as heterosexual people. I know, you might be confused between the marriage and cohabitation. The only but major difference between the two is, marriage is a written agreement between the couple but cohabitation does not involve any written agreement between the cohabitant. In today’s advanced world, almost all the countries have cohabitant. All the people have variable opinions, some consider marriage as a respectful and longer lasting whereas some want cohabitation as a superior way.
The positives of the cohabitation include;
- They share liabilities and both can live their life on their own terms and conditions
- A good option to know your partner closely
- They can decide whether they will be able to live with each other for their entire life or not
- You can find that your living habits are compatible or not
- An effective way to learn about chores and responsibilities
- An ultimate way of knowing the future or what exactly the marriage would be
They share liabilities and both can live their life on their own terms and conditions
Cohabitation can be considered as an economical mean of living with each other. In this, the couples live with each other and spend on the particular things. If you are unable to pay the expenses of marriage, so this can be the best alternative for you. With this way, you can present yourself as a married couple to the world. In marriage, it is very difficult to get separated from your partner but you won’t find difficulty in separation if you will be in cohabitation. Cohabitation is basically the mutual understanding between the couple. They can easily separate from each other at whatever time they feel like. In case of marriage, if you want to get separated from each other, you have to deal with matter legally whereas you don’t have to deal with legal issues, in the case of cohabitation.
A good option to know your partner closely
If you want to buy any product, you would love to test it. Similarly, if you want to test your partner closely before marriage, you can go for cohabitation. In this, you would be able to examine each other very closely. So, you can call it as a Test before marriage. This is the only reason for the increasing number of cohabitants. According to a recent survey, the incidence of divorce cases has been suddenly increased whereas the incidence of cohabitants is suddenly increasing. As per a recent survey, about 60-70% of adults strongly agree that cohabitation is the best easy to know your partner closely.
They can decide whether they will be able to live with each other for their entire life or not
If you want to move in with your partner into a home, the first concern is that whether you would be able to love with each other for the entire life or not. If you are looking for the future, you will expect the longevity of the relationship. So, it is the best way to test the longevity of your relation.
You can find that your living habits are compatible or not
Do you know what exactly the difference between a marriage and relationship is? The major difference is that you have to accept the living habits of your partner if you are married but you can or cannot accept the living habits of your partner. Though, it does not seem a major issue before getting married but once you are married, these small problems can easily convert into the major issues. For example, a disturbed sleeping schedule. Imagine, you sleep at 10:00 pm in the night but your partner sleep at 11:50 pm in the night or comes after partying with friends, so this small problem will cause you a lot of problems by the end.
An effective way to learn about chores and responsibilities
There are a lot of things which you are supposed to after your marriage and learning the chores and responsibility is one other main thing. Some people handle the responsibilities after the marriage but some people find it very difficult after the marriage, so they find the only way i.e., divorce. So, if you are getting married and you want to actually learn about the chores and responsibilities, you can be as a cohabitant.
An ultimate way of knowing the future or what exactly the marriage would be
As, we have already discussed that there is only small difference between the marriage and cohabitation i.e., the written agreement. So, if you want to get married with your partner, you can exactly trace how the marriage would be and how will have to deal with the problems in future. In this way, you can ask your partner to be near me with the cohabitation.
