Why Marriage Is Better Than Cohabitation | Tim Challies
“Though Christians continue to affirm the uniqueness, the goodness, and the necessity of marriage, our society continues to legitimize cohabitation as either a common precursor to marriage or a complete alternative. This slide is troubling, for marriage offers a number of important benefits that are absent from cohabitation—benefits that extend to couples, to their children, to their families, and to society as a whole.”

In other words, financial education is still very much a “learn it at home” activity.”
