"Trial Marriage". Ladies' Home Journal 14 (May 1993): 12-13.) If an unsolveable conflict arises, the couple can cancel their wedding plans and escape the painful exercise of divorce. Living together ultimately can test the couple's compatibility and have them really get to know each other.

The essay is not intended to say that divorce is the only way to fix an unhappy marriage. However, divorce is an option.
Divorce, in the first place, hurts the sanctity of marriage as a whole. Becoming a widow is tough, but should that call for a new marriage? You outlived the love of your life, why try and find another one? Remarriage damages the sanctity of marriage, it can create lasting effects on children, and there should be a limit to how many times a person can remarry. As a matter of fact, remarriage has not changed in its entirety in the past fifty
I believe this culture shift has put a shiny glean to the divorce button. I state that because of this is a new use for divorce, divorce acts like a ticket machine for getting away from your family, and therefore divorce begets divorce. The subtly of my argument might not lend as much convincing impact on an contracting reader, but in my honest thinking on the consequences of divorce, this is what allows me to take a firm stand against using divorce as anything but a last resort: mankind is a monogamous animal, that that institutionalized marriage given the force of law contradicts and acts against its actual form, and lastly we are unaware how violate political social beings actually are.
If they have only one apartment to pay for or clean, it’s going to make it easier than having two. Couples also cohabit for sexual or emotional intimacy without the responsibilities of marriage, to learn their partner’s habits and characteristics, and to prepare for marriage by practicing living together. Although people believe that cohabiting is ideal before marriage, it has many disadvantages. There are several reasons why it will increase the chance of getting a divorce. The biggest attraction to cohabiting is the easy exit out with few responsibilities.
Some get married on a whim with no regard to the commitment made before God, family and friends. Troubles hit the marriage and the only route of defense is the divorce court.

The Downside of Living Together More and more couples today live together or "play house" before taking the matrimonial plunge. Living together before marriage has become so popular that approximately half the couples in America participate in this activity (Gorrell 16). Some couples choose to live together to test their compatibility and possibly avoid an unsuccessful marriage. With the number of marriages ending in divorce these days, it sounds reasonable that many couples want to give marriage a trial run before making any formal commitment. But do the chances of a successful marriage actually improve by cohabiting?
No fault divorce allows an adult to apply for a divorce without proving that one of the adults has done wrong, like adultery, desertion, drugs, or abuse. No-fault divorce also allows an adult to divorce him/her without his/her consent. No-fault divorce is allowing the divorce rate to rise, therefore there is a need for a different law. The solution to the increasing rate is covenant marriage. Covenant marriage requires couples to take counseling before the divorce and there has to be a fault in order to divorce.
Love is the number one reason for marriage, even having Valentine’s Day to celebrate love. Yet Americans for Divorce Reform (ADR) estimate that, “Probably, 40 or possibly even 50 percent of marriages will end in divorce if current trends continue" (Colleen). The ADR also shows the divorce rates between Christians and non-Christians are indistinguishable. Even worse, Christians divorcing their spouses are distorting the Bible in order to justify their actions. Christians must be called to a higher standard in regards to divorce, and they must stop twisting the Bible to appease their conscience.
