Cohabiting Leads To Poor Relationships

Research is also discovering the process of cohabiting itself can influence couples to learn to communicate, negotiate, and settle differences in ways that are less healthy and honest than those of couples who didn’t cohabit before marriage.  This is probably because without a clearly defined relationship, the cohabiting couple can learn to be more controlling and manipulative with each other.  And this leads to relational resentment and mistrust.
