The ultimate pre-marriage insurance against divorce

Atlanta readers may have differing views on the practice of living together before marriage. Proponents might argue that living together is the best way to see if a couple will last in marriage, and may go a long way towards avoiding divorce and its attendant complications, such as the division of real estate. Others might believe that cohabitation is unnecessary if couples have taken the time to truly get to know each other. Of course, some Hollywood celebrities usurp the whole argument, choosing life-long roommate status over the institution of marriage.
