Another fun fact, the divorce rate in America's 'bible belt' is higher than that elsewhere, and I've just attended an agnostic wedding from people who didn't live together and will again in August. I think there's more to the stat than religion. Mainly people get coaxed into marriage when they're already living together because "hey why not, nothing will really change". The problem is when they, like bokey, were also coaxed into moving in together for the same reason. Slippery sloap. I stand by you either want to marry a chick or don't. Keep your freedom while you can.
