Half the couples who marry today will live together before the wedding. "You wouldnt buy a pair of shoes without trying them on," they insist. But this book presents a compelling, loving and biblical response that shows that the ancient blueprint for marriage is still the best.

In toady's society of "Casual sex", "trying on someone for size" (i.e. living together), and disposable marriage this book is great! I actually wanted to review this so that I could share it with people I know and teens/young adults. Today's society has set a new standard of relationships and in the process they have devalued the very sacred union of marriage and set people up for spiritual and emotional bondage caused by sexual sin. In secular research alone it is found that many people with multiple partners have varied issues with health, self-esteem, and settling for long term relationships.
At first glance at the title I was a little taken back - I guess it is because living together is so common place and socially accepted: My first thoughts were that this would end up giving people a chance to justify this decision.
However, quite the opposite is true. Without being judgmental or overly "religious" or pushy this book does a great job of dispelling the lies of the enemy that have taken over popular though on the subject. It would be a good book for Christians as well as non-Christians because it is so simply to the point.
This is not a book that crams religious or faith values down a persons throat but rather objectively shows the truth found in scripture. The author also shows secular research (or "evidence") that corroborates the scriptures.
I will be recommending this book to anyone I know that is considering the decision to live with someone.
Thank you Gospel Light for this review copy.
