In South and Glenna Spilze’s research reports that the


spite of these above advantages, it is undeniable that
cohabitation brings hidden risks in many aspects. The first drawback is losing
the enjoyment in marriage. People who have ever cohabited will not feel delight
to the honeymoon any more. When a girl/boy moves to live with someone, she/he
will understand their partner’s character, hobbies, habits, and actions. Thus,
the while after  wedding will not be
interesting to couples. In addition, cohabitors are showed to have low
emotional well-being. Thinking about breaking up in love seems to be the main
factor that causes the psychological situation. Couples who live together
before marriage are believed to feel more miserable and unhappy with their
current life (Waite, 2000). They are worried that their relationship is not
stable, and they will walk away on someday. Another disadvantage of
cohabitation is that women are often unfavorable in terms of doing housework
when living with men. The Scott South and Glenna Spilze’s research reports that
the time women do household chores is much more than men do. The men have to
spend about ten hours less on domestic duties than women. Compare to living
lonely or with the same gender people, cohabiting with men makes women do more
housework (Waite, 2000). The other downside of living together is making a gap
with people in several social organizations, especially religion. Cohabitation  is not supported and encouraged by most
religions. Cohabitors can not be allowed to involve in the communities. As a
consequence, people who live together while dating take part in less religion
activities (Waite, 2000). Moreover, cohabitation is not a permanent
relationship. Cohabitors are less likely to enter a married life. If it is easy
for them to live together before marriage, their relationship is also easy to
break up. According to studies, only a half of cohabitors get married after
ending their cohabition (Canham, 2017). There is no legal commitment to
constrain those people to any responsibilities. They can be fed up with their
partner, and do not want to continue their life with her/him. Women consider
living together while having no a married commitment as a progress to go to a
wedding. Whereas, men just think it as a method to evaluate their relationship
or delay marriage (Jayapril, 2012). Cohabitation also brings a serious impact
which is domestic violence. A American professor, Linda J. Waite, studied the
1987/88 National Survey of Families and Households. Her analysis revealed that
cohabitors are twice as likely as married couples to cope with violent activities.
16 percent of women who live with their boyfriend before marriage have to face
to domestic violence. Conflicts and arguments can change from speeches to
physical action. They can be hit, thrown, slapped, or insulted. Meanwhile, just
8 percent of women who are married bear the problem. Cohabitors are often very
young and even have low education level, so it is difficult for them to control
their violence. Another negative impact of cohabitation is an increase in rate
of divorce. Cohabitors’ point of view seems to be varied after living together
before marriage. They can less co-operate (Waite, 2000). Thus, couples who have
ever cohabited are easier to put an end to their married commitment.
