“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew ) “…
The LORD God will give grace and glory; no good will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” (Psalm ) Sometimes we think that “everyone is doing it,” and there are a lot that are, but there are also a lot of Christians who are waiting for marriage before they have sex.
God is also adamant about this subject of fornication, and, yes, living together before being married is fornication.
“Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4) We are not to play as close to the fire as we can, we are to get away from the fire! Every sin that a man [woman] does is outside the body, but he [she] who commits sexual immorality sins against his [her] own body.

What does the Bible mean that we are not to judge others?
He who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him [her].” (1 John 23-4) You might think that this is a little strong, but you will need to take it up with God and His Word the Bible if you feel this way.How much better it would be to seek God’s perfect will, and wait on God’s timing for us to get married.He can, and will help us if we are willing to wait for His best for our lives.Two people living together or even staying over night together will sooner or later reap the consequences.Just look at the story of Samson in the Bible, Judges 16, and see his tragic end.Everything is lawful for me, but I will not become the slave of anything or be brought under its power.
