Lack of commitment “may not feel” as committed.

cohabitation-congratulations

Article in the New York Times, suggesting perhaps our most significant romantic relationships need to be built on commitment after all:

“Founding relationships on convenience or ambiguity can interfere with the process of claiming the people we love. A life built on top of “maybe you’ll do” simply may not feel as dedicated as a life built on top of the “we do” of commitment or marriage.”

  1. This is news???

    Also, “those who use cohabitation as a test are most at risk for poor relationship quality and eventual relationship dissolution.” (from the same article). Or, when all else fails (preferably sooner), Read The Maker’s Manual!
