We find it for couples considering pre-marital cohabitation, but a closer look shows a more difficult picture. Once couples are closer to marriage the “Break up” is so difficult because much of the greater investment.

This idea of living together before marriage baffles a lot of people who are pro and against the idea. Yet, when you think about it for a moment, it does kind of make sense. Compared to previous generations, millennials would rather live together to decide whether marriage is in their future.
