Do you support living together before marriage? Why or why not?

I personally think it’s important to know what you’re getting yourself into before getting married. I know several couples that waited until they were married to move in together and divorced within a year because they couldn’t live together.

I’m also asking because my boyfriend of almost 4 years and I don’t currently live together but spend the night at each other’s 5x a week. I also don’t want to be the one to ask, but he’s buying a house this month and my rent is up in 8 months. I still have some time to figure out where I’m going to live, but I can’t help but imagine living together and how it would be. We discussed it almost a year ago and said we weren’t ready, but we’ve grown a lot as a couple and individually so I’m curious if he still feels that way. Is there a way I can be casual about asking or getting him to ask me? We talk about marriage sometimes but I don’t see that happening for another few years.

I know that there’s outside factors other than time that determine this, but I’m purely curious about the time frame.
