Living Together: Myths, Risks &
Answers by Mike & Harriet McManus
This book offers a strategy to reduce cohabitation –
the greatest marriage killer - in the church and community. Over 40%
of couples marrying today are living together. Couples think that by
cohabiting they are testing the viability of their marriage.
However, those who marry after living together are 50% more likely to
divorce than those who remained apart until the wedding. Why? As one
marriage educator put it, “You can’t practice permanence.” Another
sad result: three-fourths of those who live together break up short
of marriage. Result: the number of never-married Americans over age
25 has jumped nearly 5-fold from 8.7 million in 1970 to 41.3 million
in 2015. If the same percentage of couples got married in 2015 as in
1970, there would have been 1.3 million more marriages annually -
3.5 million weddings, not 2.1 million.

allowing no time for reconciliation. What’s needed is a minimum of a
one year delay before a divorce is granted – and two years if the
divorce is contested or if there are children. However, during this
delay the couple should be allowed to continue living together –
rather than being forced to move apart - to encourage them to
