Divorce and Cohabitation Before Marriage

Read the ZENIT article here on the high divorce rates among those who cohabit prior to marriage. The article summarizes a study that examined cohabitation and its effects on marriage. The Detroit News also recently ran an article on this unfortunate practice here in Michigan.
We must continually be on our guard in our culture for erosions of the family; no matter how financially helpful or otherwise great cohabitation seems, it's only another trick of the devil.
