Is It OK to Live Together?

Series: Modern Marriage

Pete Briscoe

Couples living together without the benefit of marriage have become an accepted social norm—and it’s also occurring within the Christian community. In fact, there’s a good chance that the couple of the last wedding you attended lived together before they got married.

Is sharing living space and sexual intimacy without being married a good idea? Even if you’re not grappling with this question, you likely know of someone who is—or at least they should be!

In this message, Pete Briscoe shares what the Bible teaches on this topic and shows you what couples might unwittingly sacrifice when they decide to live together before marriage. 

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 6:15 - 6:20 , 1 Thessalonians 4:3 - 4:5
