Relationships live-in cohabitation couples freedome to leave compatibility

Living in or cohabitating means two people are staying together out of mutual consent with no legal bond. A person is free to walk out of the relationship as and when he or she feels like it - there are no court cases or alimony. No one is questionable or accountable to the other.




There is a positive and flip side to every type of arrangement. One should consider and choose wisely what is suitable and healthy for themselves.

poorly written -> highly judgemental article.


It\'s a good read for someone who has already experienced something of this sort but for someone who is considering to move in with their partner, I think the article was drifting more towards why live in relationships are a complete disaster. It kind of lost the neutrality aspect as the topic does not really specify the drawbacks only. The suggestions for discussion were pretty insightful.
