At one time moving in together was the sign of a serious commitment. In the eyes of many people it was considered to be the last step before marriage (a pre-trial so to speak). However, I’m not sure if this is true any longer. There are a large number of people who live together that have no intention of ever getting married. There are also couples who seem to use moving in together as a agreement to cut cost (sharing rent, utilities, etc). I’ve even seen some folks move in with a boyfriend/girlfriend because they wanted to get out of their parent’s house, and couldn’t afford rent on their own. Knowing all these patterns are happening in society, can moving in together still be seen as a sign of a serious commitment? Let’s discuss!
