Living Together

Traditionally it referred to two or more people residing in the same premises, for company or convenience – such as a widow and her child – in a totally non-sexual relationship. Today however it increasingly refers to a couple moving into the same address and having sexual relationship before marriage. This ‘try before you buy’ idea, although accepted by society, does not meet with God’s approval (Heb 13:4; Rev 22:15).
