I had a disagreement with my wife over this one. I stated that the Church does not want a couple to co-habitat for at least six months before marriage and having a child between them in their pseudo-marital arrangement did not matter. After having considered my wife’s statement that I never think she is right. I thought for a moment and decided that maybe I was wrong and then decided that this may be the place to get the answer.
So is there a dogmatic rule which prohibits a couple from living together regardless of children being present prior to marriage, this assumes a chaste relationship. Same question but this one with children. If there is a rule how long by that same rule must they be separated before marriage?
Thanks and God Bless
