I posted in an FB group on what people thought about cohabitation before marriage. This is a group for introverts, nothing to do with red pill. There were over 150 replies (still coming) and less than 15 people approve of it! I wanted to share this guy's reply with this sub. Here's a screenshot.
'Everyone is different, so I would never tell someone "No," but I will elaborate on why I loved living apart.
1.) It built the anticipation and excitement like you wouldn't believe.
2.) It literally made the marriage a life changing event. So many people get married and say it's "same old, same old." That was not our case.
3.) "I do" set in motion a new chapter of our relationship. My girlfriend became my wife, and we embarked on exploring each other on newer and more romantic depths than ever before.
4.) I was burning my escape bridge. If we found us to be incompatible, we would have to adapt to one another and grow together-for each other. Simply living together leaves a convenient out that makes it too easy to "try someone out."'
