Women, Men, & Cohabitation

with Ron Deal | May 8, 2020

Cohabitation promises a lot, but delivers very little. Research confirms that cohabiting women are just as committed as married women. And, cohabiting men are not and they remain less committed. In other words, a cohabiting woman assumes she is in a stable, long-term relationship when really she isn't. Choosing that-it's like shooting herself in the foot. Our culture calls cohabitation a safeguard for women. It's not. Cohabitation creates vulnerability. Don't listen to the lie. Listen to God.
