WhWhy Living Together Leads to a Marriage That Lasts Forever? In today’s society, a majority of young couples are taking the opposite route when it comes to preparing for marriage. Instead of waiting till their newlyweds to move in together, many couples have decided to move in together. They believe that by living together, the divorce rate is decreased significantly. This idea of living together before marriage baffles a lot of people who are pro and against the idea.
This may reduce the chance of people’s later realization that they didn’t really know themselves when they got married, as well as the feeling that they have grown apart from each other. Marriage should be a mature and responsible decision; it should be a long-lasting commitment. People seem to take this commitment all too lightly in today's generation and it leads to high rates in early marriages. I strongly claim that early marriage is a violation of children's basic rights and to making decisions about their own lives. With the standards established up to date, marriage comes with manifold responsibilities; most of them teens are not prepared to handle.
People seem to take this commitment all too lightly in today's generation.

Also as children get older they end up feeling less affection for their parents and have less contact with them and engage in fewer family activities (Matthews). Specific emotional long terms effects include fears of betrayal, abandonment, loss and rejection. Rising anxiety could last into then teens and early twenties.
Actions do speak louder than words. “I, ____, take you, ____, to be my lawfully wedded (husband/wife), to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part” are vows that seems not valid to many marriages. In the United States the rate of divorce is 50%. The decision of divorce creates many negative effects on children, friends and family. Today society has created divorce as an open subject which is allowing the viewers to think that giving up and not working it out is a okay thing to do .
There are several reasons that cause people to divorce and this result affects the children. In the U.S., is it common that we see many married people end their relationship with a divorce and most of them are young people. The divorce rates still at a high rate that in the Unites States statistics show, one out of two marriages end in divorce. The current divorce rate may be decreasing however at the same time many people are not getting married so therefore the divorce rates remains low. When people get married and divorce so easily it causes many not to take marriage as something serious.

Conclusion Successful marriages can only be down when the couples build a solid foundation of a healthy and long lasting relationship. One can build a foundation by compromising of common set of core value, interests they both share in the long run. Without the foundation, marriages fail to reach the goals or expectations from their partner.
According to the 2014 National Survey of Family Growth conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every year, 2, 077, 000 couples in the United States get married. Unfortunately, almost 50% of these marriages end in divorce (Jasmin). What happened to “Till death do us part?” Has marriage lost its value in the society? Why has divorce become prevalent? According to a survey conducted by Daily Infographic, poor communication, finances, abuse, lack of interest to each other, and infidelity are the top five most typical reasons of divorce.
The Effects of Divorce Divorce is one of those things that are mainly mentioned by people who haven't gone through the experience. Those who have are the ones who don't ever want to talk about it. There is a promise that each individual of a marriage makes that basically y says that they will be faithful, caring, and will stay together until death do they part. Lately this promise has been broken more than half of the time. A divorce not only affects the husband and wife but also the children of the mairiage.
