I recently found in a class that apparently, cohabitation before marriage actually leads to more divorces than waiting until marriage to move in together. The general idea stems from separating the relationship and the marriage. Living together reinforces the relationship, but traditional methods usually reinforce there is no divorce, so people who wait to move in together are likely "traditional" and are far less likely to turn divorce as an option regardless of living together.
I guess I was just looking for some thoughts on this because I think many modern westerners view living together before marriage as a very positive way to cut down on divorce.
So go ahead, say what ya think

I think that int the past divorcing was seen as a terrible thing and a lot of couples stayed together because they had to and not because they wanted to. Some were stuck with a marriage without love. Now, we have a possibility to live again even if a marriage doesn't work. Following the traditional way doesn't mean you'll be happy in a marriage. All that matters is to try hard enough to make it work, traditional or modern.0
