i can only do this if i already experienced marriage.  right now, i still have to protect the name of my family, not that i have anything against those who do this, i just feel that the people around me will really disown me and malign my family if i live in with someone who is not my husband.

I think living together is not a taboo anymore. When my hubby and I started off, we spent weekends on his house consistently without my mom knowing. After 2 years, we decided to go to Singapore and my mom made no fuss about it. When we came back, I just casually said na sa bahay kame mag-stay. After a year we got married.

For us, we never formally talked na 'o let's move in together' it just fell into place. My mom was open about it probably because I was on the right age and I already proved something to her particularly being responsible.
Whatever I want, I get. If I can't, I don't stop TRYING.

for me its ok na mag live in muna get to know each other better..iba kasi talaga pag mag bf-gf na nagkikita lang pag lalabas or bisita bisita sa bahay at iba din talaga kung magkasama na sa bahay....

well im independent so my parents won't know if ever na magkaroon ako ng ka live in hehe!

My parents will kill me if I do it, but I am in favor of live-in. I think its a way para malaman mo talaga kung sino ang partner mo diba? My only worry of that kind of set-up is "what's next? will we ever get married or just remain that was forever?" Because for me, I would be silently wishing for marriage if ever I would move-in with my bf.

i'd rather live-in with a guy than get married and separate in the end. sa dami ng naghihiwalay na mag-asawa ngayon, dadagdag pa ba ko sa bilang nila?! much better to live-in, when u don't feel like it anymore, just leave... no papers to sign, no money involved!

ok lang sana if wala maging baby muna while naglilive-in. kase mahirap may anak na kami then live-in pa rin...i mean pano na bata if maghiwalay din kami in the end or puro away then yun nga eventually magseparate din...kawawa naman yung bata...and ako din kawawa...may anak na walang asawa...

same sentiment..
what could be his reason para di pa ako pakasalan if we're already living together?

personally, i'm glad i didn't live-in with my husband when we were still bf/gf.  marriage became so much fun for us,  parang first sa lahat ng bagay.  even the petty fights on dumping the dirty clothes in the hanger and fighting over a favorite pillow seemed cute after we go married and lived in the same house.  however, i have nothing against couples who live-in.

for me, no talaga.. i've nothing against those in favor of living in with their partners pero for me kasi gusto kong i-maximize yung time ko sa house namin kasi pag nag-asawa na ko, i won't have as much time for my parents & family members na. so habang single pa, stay lang muna ko with my parents pa rin.

All girls wants to be married, in a Live-in case or situation lugi ang girl, since you do not hold anything from your partner which is in return you are giving your whole self already.

However, that is my only opinion, I also don't have anything against to couple that are living in together.
I am nobody.

Nobody is PERFECT.

Therefore, I am PERFECT!.

our set-up is sort of live-in.. practical for him.. malayo kase bahay nila so pag weekdays sa apartment ko sya nakikitulog since sobrang lapit lang from his work.. parang a short walk lang.. and he's helping me with groceries now.. it's a win-win for us.. at sa sinasabi nila na pag-live in, nawawala na sa priorities ang wedding.. not in our case.. as a matter of fact, living together is what sealed the deal. :) case to case basis yan.. if one of you e kuntento na sa live-in lang, how do you ever expect na mapupunta sa marriage ang status nyo.. kami kase we both want to take it to the next level..

In my experience, i would go for live in muna.

Marami ka matutununan na in the end you will realize if you can live with the person for the rest of your lives (with or without child).

live in is just right. I'm actually sharing a flat with a lady. Although we are not couple and we don't have relationship. I am just renting the other room.

At least that way you can get to know the other person better. His/her good/bad traits.

That is live-in on the same flat but different room. Not the same room.

hi!parang the subject of the topic is living in to someone you can marry because you have a relationship...

Kasi sis, naconfuse ako sa reply mo you are living in with your flatmate without any relationship, malamang it's just right?  :o ???
I am nobody.

Nobody is PERFECT.

Therefore, I am PERFECT!.

^ i'm a guy sis.  What I mean is there is nothing wrong with a man and woman to live on the same flat.  There is nothing wrong with that.

I'm renting a room, because its a 2 bedroom apartment and she actually advertised for a male flatmate than a female. (yep it was specified in the ads) .

No were not a couple. So I don't see anything wrong for a man and woman whether you have relationship or not to live on the same flat.

I even see some male/female flatmates who share the same room, but different bed.
